About

I am a current Ph.D. student at the University of Vermont in the Mathematics Department with a Graduate Teaching Assistantship. I thoroughly enjoy teaching at the college level and hope to continue upon graduation (anticipated May 2024). During the summers of 2020 and 2021, I have been a Graduate Research Assistant for my Ph.D. advisor, Dr. Christelle Vincent. Together, we are exploring the topics of Ring Learning with Errors (RLWE).

I received a Bachelor's Degree at Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, MA in May 2018. I majored in Mathematics with concentrations in both Pure Math and Statistics. I also had a minor in Computer Science. As a senior, I taught a supplementary course that accompanies Calculus I for undergraduates in the major.

When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy various other activities. I enjoy yoga, watching movies (especially Disney movies), and knitting scarves, hats, and blankets. I've recently taught myself how to crochet and am currently working on making throw pillow covers!
