I'm a Ph.D student in the Pure and Applied Logic program at CMU. My advisor is Ernest Schimmerling.

My research involves applications of set theory to the theory of operator algebras. I'm also interested in forcing axioms and their combinatorial consequences, in particular Todorcevic's Axiom (also known as the Open Coloring Axiom). You can find my research page here. My vita can be found here.

I am at present (spring 2013) the teaching assistant for 21-269, Vector Analysis, taught by prof. Giovanni Leoni.

In the summer of 2012 I taught 21-241, Matrices and Linear Transformations.

I was (in Fall 2011) the teaching assistant for 21-242, Matrix Theory, taught by prof. James Cummings.
