**About me:**I finished my PhD in mathematics in May 2016 under the supervision of Professor Alex J. Feingold. My research interests are in Kac-Moody Lie algebras and geometric group theory. In 2010, I earned a Masters of Science in Mathematics from Rutgers University under Professor Lisa Carbone.

**Teaching Experience:**- Linear Algebra (Math 304): Spring 2016, Summer 2014, Spring 2012, and Spring 2011.
- Calculus I (Math 221, Math 224/225): Fall 2015, Summer 2015, Fall 2014, and Fall 2013.
- Calculus II (Math 222): Spring 2015 and Fall 2011.
- Calculus III (Math 323): Spring 2013 and Fall 2012.
- Algebra and Trigonometry (Math 108): Fall 2010.
- Pre-Calculus (Educational Opportunity Program - Math 100C): Summer 2015, Summer 2013, Summer 2012, Summer 2011.
