ABOUT ME

I grew up in Litchfield, Connecticut where I spent a great deal of time outside playing baseball, hiking and camping. I then attended Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where dedicated professors inspired me to major in mathematics and minor in philosophy. I combined my love for nature and passion for applied mathematics while studying at the University of Tennessee by focusing my dissertation on ecological modeling. In addition to mathematics, my hobbies include hiking, camping, pick up sports and riding my 1985 BMW motorcycle.
