About Me

I attended the University of Central Arkansas from 2010 - 2016 where I received a Bachelor's degree in Pure and Applied Mathematics and a Master's of Science in Applied Mathematics. I'm currently working towards a PhD in Mathematical Sciences at Utah State University. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, socializing with friends, birding, photography, and yoga.

Research Focus/Study

Geometry of Differential Equations.

Why I came to USU

I was interested in learning the Cartan Equivalence Method from Mark Fels and Ian Anderson to study nonlinear PDE.
