My professional credentials include a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Cornell University, a previous teaching position at Harvard University, and several teaching awards from both institutions. I have designed and taught math courses at almost every level, so I am intimately familiar with the content as well as the current best practices for teaching those topics. My supportive attitude and student-driven approach to teaching math has earned me a nearly perfect course evaluation record across nine years of teaching in higher ed.

Ph.D. in Mathematics
My graduate research focused on 3- and 4-dimensional objects (called "manifolds"). In particular, my thesis focused on ways in which 2-dimensional objects ("surfaces") fit inside manifolds and how the structure of one informs the other.
B.S. in Computational Mathematics
