I am a graduate of the mathematics PhD program at the University of South Carolina. My advisor is Michael Filaseta.

My research interests are all in the area of number theory. My dissertation covers topics related to digit changing, covering systems, and polynomials that take on prime values.

This website still exists for some reason, but likely will be taken down soon.

I no longer organize the graduate colloquium, but here's a link for the Spring 2019 colloquium and here's one for the Fall 2018 colloquium, which are the two semesters I organized it. You should be able to find an up-to-date link to the current graduate colloquium on the department's colloquia and seminars page.

My main non-math hobby is chess. In my spare time I dabble in blitz and bullet on chess.com. My favorite chess openings are the Italian as White and the Sicilian as black.
