I am a Full Professor in the Mathematics Department at Rice University.

My research interests are in various aspects of Noncommutative Algebra, and I am especially interested in (quantum) symmetries of algebras. Lately, my research interests have been centered on algebraic structures in categories. For an introduction to some of these topics, see my 2021 NAM Claytor-Woodard Lecture at the Joint Mathematics Meetings below. I am also in the process of writing a series of books on algebraic aspects of quantum symmetry.

In 2014, I co-founded a research network and created the site & contact list for women and non-binary researchers in Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory (WINART). I led the WINART Research Network from 2014 to 2022, including co-organizing three workshops: in 2016, in 2019, and in 2022. WINART is now under new leadership, and I serve in an advisory role. Other events that I have co-organized include: Algebra Extravaganza! at Temple U. (2017); QuaSy-Con at UIUC (2019); and the MSRI semester on Quantum Symmetries (2020).

I am also an Associate Editor at the Communications of the American Mathematical Society (a new AMS journal that was launched in January 2021), and an Editor at the Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society (Feb '24 - Jan '28).
