I wrote my thesis in algebraic combinatorics with a focus on surface and orbifold models of cluster algebras under the direction of Nathan Reading. In general, I enjoy combinatorial questions with a concrete, geometric flavor. I am also interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning in mathematics.
