About Me


I am an RTG Lovett Instructor at Rice University working with Tony Várilly-Alvarado. I obtained my PhD in 2016 from Emory University under the advisement of David Zureick-Brown.

I am interested in rational points on curves, solutions to Diophantine equations, Galois representations and modular curves, and local-global principles. I am also the proud owner of a beautiful italian greyhound named Milo (middle name Frobenius, because we're inseparable).

This semester I am co-organizing the Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory seminar at Rice. The schedule for the seminar can be found here.
