I have been at Georgetown since 2015.

I formerly taught at Oberlin College. Since 2019 I have served as the Director of Undergraduate Studies for our department.

My primary research area is configuration theory. Configurations are arrangements of points and lines which satisfy certain regularity properties, or more abstractly are incidence structures which share similar properties. My research projects are largely accessible to undergraduates.

I have been teaching undergraduate mathematics for over 20 years. I can't think of anything else that I would want to do, or indeed would know how to do! :)

I am an avid chess player and choral singer in my copious spare time.
