About Me


In August 2016, I started my assistant professorship at Drake University. Previously, from August 2014 to August 2016, I was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida, working under the supervision of Doug Cenzer. From September 2012 to August 2014, I was an NSF International Research Fellow, working with Laurent Bienvenu at Université Paris 7 as a member of LIAFA.  In May 2012, I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics and Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame as part of the Joint Program in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics.

The mathematical portion of my dissertation was written under the supervision of Peter Cholak in the Department of Mathematics, and the philosophical portion was written under the supervision  Michael Detlefsen and Curtis Franks in the Department of Philosophy.
