About me: I am a fourth year graduate student and PhD candidate in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. My advisor is Vic Reiner. I did my undergrad at Reed College. After that, I spent a year at Smith College's Post-Baccalaureate Program for women in mathematics.
I am currently supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Before that, I was supported by a three-year UMN College of Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship.
Research: I study algebraic combinatorics. Specifically, I am interested in reflection groups and their connections to combinatorics, representation theory and algebraic topology. See my research page for more details.

- I am a co-organizer of the Mathematics Project at Minnesota, a weeklong workshop for UMN undergraduates that come from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics. The workshop runs annually every January.
- I co-organized the (virtual) Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference on April 23-25, 2021 at UMN. All talk recordings can be found here.
- Next year (2021-2022) I will co-organize the Graduate Online Combinatorics Colloquium. If you are interested in speaking, please let me know.
- May 12: Speaking at the Pedagogy Seminar at University of Chicago. Watch a recording of our talk here.
- May 16: Speaking at Women in Combinatorics and Representation Theory Conference. My slides can be found here.
- May 26: Speaking at IAS Program for Women in Mathematics Postdoc seminar. My slides can be found here.
