I am a visiting assistant professor at Michigan State University. In general I study cluster algebras and their connections to representation theory, topology and combinatorics. I received my PhD from Louisiana State University under the guidance of Milen Yakimov. I also enjoy teaching and mathematics education deeply, and more information on my teaching background can be found throughout my website. My personal interests include: basketball, board games, and hanging out with the little guy in the photo (that's my son Elijah).
