B.S. University of Florida, Physics, 1995

Ph.D. University of Pennsylvania, Physics, 2000

Ph.D. University of California-Irvine, Mathematics, 2022

In 2000 I got my first PhD in Physics at the University of Pennsylvania with Prof. Paul Steinhardt, in the field of high-energy cosmology - concerning overcoming theoretical hurdles and facing experimental tests. After that I was a postdoctoral researcher at Queen Mary College in London, UK. While there, I broadened my research in theoretical cosmology, working with Prof. James Lidsey and Prof. Reza Tavakol. At UIUC, working with Prof. Ben Wandelt, I continued my theoretical research. I chose to return to graduate school to for a PhD in mathematics in 2014. While taking math courses at UC Riverside to prepare, I had the opportunity to work with Prof Larry Harper on a project in phyllotaxis. At UC Irvine I studied algebraic geometry and number theory. In my thesis project with Prof. Vladimir Baranovsky, titled “Obstructions to Deformation Quantization of Bundles”, we found a previously unknown obstruction class. I also had the opportunity to do research in combinatorics with applications to quantum information theory, and in probabilistic number theory. In the future I hope build upon and expand my current research at the interface of mathematics and physics.
