**Update:** as of August, 2015, I have moved to UNC Charlotte. For current information, please visit my new site here.

While at Duke, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor working with Sayan Mukherjee and John Harer. My interests are in dynamical systems and ergodic theory, probability, statistics, and mathematical biology.
