Fun fact:  My middle school class had only 10 students.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Before coming to Brown, I spent some time at a Quaker school in Philadelphia and I credit my experience there for fostering my intellectual curiosity and showing me the value of fearless inquiry. I first realized that Mathematics was something I could pursue seriously at the university level during my pre-calculus course in 10th grade and since then, I've worked in research in high energy physics, combinatorics, and dynamical systems. Pedagogy is incredibly important to me and at Brown, I've TAed courses in the Mathematics and Computer Science departments.
