I've been at Hamilton College since July, 2013, as an assistant professor of mathematics. I study commutative and homological algebra, and my primary research interest is the study of infinite free resolutions. I have recently begun to work in algebraic statistics, too, where I study the maximum likelihood degree of models that produce toric varieties. My Ph.D. is from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I was advised by Lucho Avramov and Roger Wiegand. My undergraduate alma mater is Colorado College (go Tigers!).
