(Ph. D and A.M.) Washington University in St. Louis (2019-2022)

While working on a Ph.D. in Mathematics, I continued to explore math with computational tools. focusing on finite element exterior calculus, but also beginning work in quiver representations in various contexts. Some of my main interests and pursuits while at WashU were:

nonconforming finite elements

Firedrake library for Python

quivers for Sincere Thin representations (theory and implementation in Python and Macaulay2)

quivers with mutations and the McKay correspondence

the mathematics of Gerrymandering

(M.S.) Tarleton State University (2015-2017)

I earned a master's in Mathematics with an emphasis in data mining at Tarleton State University, as part of my continuing interest in combining computers and mathematics in any way I can. While at Tarleton I worked on:

gas dynamics

parallel programming in Cuda

statistical modeling (theoretical, and implementation in Python, R, SAS, SQL)

data warehousing

text cleaning

(M.S.) University of Tennessee in Chattanooga SimCenter (2012-2015)

At the SimCenter I first encountered applied mathematics, as well as the joy of combining computational work and mathematical analysis. I have been trying ever since to find the balance between these two areas of interest. At the SimCenter I was involved in:

mathematical modeling for physical simulations

viscous fluid flow

mesh generation using GridGen and Pointwise softwares

programming in Python, Fortran, C/C++

shell scripting

parallel programming (MPI, OpenMP, Posix threads)

finite element methods
