I am an RTG Lovett Instructor at Rice University. I received my PhD in 2016 at the University of Texas at Austin and my B.S. at UIUC in 2010. I grew up in Chicago, IL. These days, my main interests outside of math include cooking/baking, consuming coffee (if you couldn't guess), painting, attending concerts, reading, playing board games, various additional arts & crafts projects, and bouldering.
I am interested in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. In particular, I work on obstructions to the Hasse principle. My current projects involve studying Brauer-Manin obstructions to integral and rational points on certain families of surfaces and higher dimensional varieties. My thesis advisor was Felipe Voloch. My postdoc mentor is Tony Várilly-Alvarado .
In the summer of 2012 I worked as a teaching assistant at the Summer Program for Women in Math (SPWM) at George Washington University. If you are an undergraduate woman interested in math, check it out!
