Welcome!

I am an assistant professor with the Department of Mathematics at the University of Rhode Island. As a mathematician, my research lies principally in graph theory, the mathematical analysis of networks. A major theme of my research is how simple local rules can have big impacts on the global structure of networks. I love teaching, too, and this semester I am offering courses in applied calculus, mathematical rigor, geometry, and topics in extremal graph theory. In the past I have also enjoyed interacting with students outside the classroom, both on individual research projects on a variety of topics and through outreach programs for high school and middle school students, including math circles and summer camps.

On these pages you can find out a bit more about me, my research, and resources for my students. Want to contact me? I'd love to hear from you--please use the information below.
