My research interests include Discrete Mathematics and its connections with other fields (more specifically, Algebraic and Enumerative Combinatorics, Combinatorial Representation Theory, and Graph Theory).

I received my Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Professor Victor Reiner. My Thesis is 0-Hecke algebra actions on flags, polynomials, and Stanley-Reisner rings.

I use mathematics software such as GAP, Magma, and Sage in my research.

I am the organizer for the annual UNK Undergraduate Research Mathematics Mini-Symposium: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 (canceled due to COVID), 2022, 2023.
