I am a PhD student at University of Florida. As an undergraduate, I double majored in Physics and Mathematics at University of Cincinnati. I completed my Master's degree at University of Florida in Spring 2015.
I have research interests in both pure and applied mathematics. I am currently focused on algebraic topology and its applications to machine learning. On the pure side, I'm a long time fan of finite group theory, where my research includes studying solvable groups using graph theory, and, more recently, extending this to using abstract simplicial complexes. I also like computational physics, having worked for several years with the great scientists at the Belle collaboration.
Some peripheral interests, in no particular order, are: multivariate public key cryptography, probability, and alternative pedagogy.
