About Me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Auburn University.

I grew up in New York City and graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 2005. For my undergrad education, I majored in Applied Mathematics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduating in May 2009.

I earned my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Illinois in August 2014. My advisor was Douglas B. West.

From 2014 to 2016, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Coordinated Science Lab of the University of Illinois, working in the research group of Olgica Milenkovic. From 2016 to 2018, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Auburn University, after which I accepted a tenure-track position there.

My primary research interest is combinatorics, especially graph theory, coloring problems, and combinatorial games. Other interests include computation, logic, and game theory (in the economic sense).
