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 explored Ring Learning with Errors (RLWE), which are latticed-based cryptography problems.

I received a Bachelor's Degree at Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, MA in May 2019. I majored in Mathematics with concentrations in both Pure Math and Statistics. I also had a minor in Computer Science. During the 2018-2019 school year, I taught a supplementary course that accompanied Calculus I for undergraduates in STEM.

When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy yoga, watching movies (especially Disney movies), and knitting scarves, hats, and blankets. I've recently taught myself how to crochet. I have also been cooking and baking a ton; I am having a lot of fun making fresh pasta!

My current area of research is in Algebraic Number Theory and Cryptography. Specifically, I have been working on Ring Learning with Errors (RLWE) with my Ph.D. advisor Dr. Christelle Vincent. Lattice-based cryptosystems are showing to be a strong candidate for post-quantum encryption. We are studying the various sampling algorithms for which small error terms are drawn, as well as, working towards generalizing the Polynomial Ring Learning with Errors (PLWE) problems.
