I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Amherst College. My research lies at the junction of Harmonic Analysis, Partial Differential Equations, and Geometric Analysis, and a large portion of my work falls under the scope of the general program aimed at studying the interplay between geometry and analysis by addressing issues such as how to relate the geometric make-up of an environment to the analysis it can support. Most of my publications can be found in the research tab, above.

In addition to research, I am interested in pedagogy as well as questions arising in math education. In particular, I am co-P.I. (together with: Armin Schikorra, Dana Miller-Cotto) on an interdisciplinary project aimed at identifying key characteristics of a student which would make them more likely to succeed in an active learning vs traditional classroom environment.
