### About me

I am a Zelevinsky Research Instructor (formerly Postdoctoral Teaching Associate) in the Department of Mathematics at Northeastern University (Boston, MA), working with Professors Alexander Martsinkovsky and Gordana Todorov. I am finishing my postdoc at Northeastern and currently on this year’s job market.

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Texas A&M University in August 2014. My thesis advisor is Professor Sarah Witherspoon.

My non-math hobbies include cooking, hiking, coffee-shop hopping, traveling and reading. I love food and love to try/cook various cuisines. It is my favorite way to expose to different cultures, people, and backgrounds; and it goes very well with my travel interest.

I also am the faculty advisor for the Northeastern Math Club, see Service & Outreach tab for current club’s events. I’d love to share ideas on undergraduate Math club activities. Students who are interested in taking the Putnam Math Competition, which holds on Saturday December 3, 2016, should contact me for more information.
