I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Kansas.
Before coming to Kansas, I was a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Utah.
I was also a Dunham Jackson Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota, and
a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
in the Commutative Algebra program.
My Ph.D. advisor at the University of Michigan was
Mel Hochster.
