I am currently a fifth (and final) year mathematics graduate student at the University of South Carolina, and my advisor is Matt Ballard. I am interested in algebraic geometry questions in positive characteristic, derived categories, toric varieties, and spherical varieties, amongst (a lot of) other things. In particular, I have recently been thinking about using the derived category to answer rationality questions.

Besides math, I like to draw, paint, and hang out with animals.

During the Spring 2019 semester, I began collecting data on usage of the mathematics tutoring center in LeConte 105. You can learn more about this here.
