About Me

Currently, I am a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Villanova University.


In May, 2021, I graduated with a Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Delaware. My advisor is Dr. Felix Lazebnik. My dissertation is titled The Extremality of 2-Partite Turán Graphs with Respect to the Number of Colorings (please see my Research Statement). I recently submitted a paper based on my dissertation work.

I received a Master's in Mathematics from Montclair State University under the advisement of Dr. Jonathan Cutler in May 2013. I received a second Master's in Mathematics from the University of Delaware in May 2018.

My research interests include graph colorings, graph polynomials, extremal graph theory, and enumerative combinatorics. I also enjoy learning about probabilistic combinatorics.
