  • Math 147 - Honors Calculus III - Fall 2017 -- All course information can be found on Blackboard.

Office Hours:

Thursday 11 AM - 12 PM and 3 PM - 4 PM
Also by appointment.
I am now holding my office hours in Snow 651.
Look for me there if I'm not in my office during the above times.


  • April 7-9, the University of Kansas will host the Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference 2017. Registration is now open! The deadline to request funding is March 1. Feel free to contact me about the conference at any time.
  • My advisor is Jeremy Martin. Together with Art Duval and Caroline Kilvans, we recently constructed a non-partitionable Cohen-Macaulay complex, disproving a long-standing conjecture of Richard Stanley. I am currently working on the conjecture for balanced Cohen-Macaulary complexes.

  • "Generalized nerves of simplicial complexes," Graduate Algebra Seminar, University of Kansas, September 19, 2017
