## About Me

This August, I will be joining the faculty at the University of Delaware's Department of Mathematical Sciences.

In the mean time, I am a Warren Postdoctoral Fellow at the Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania, working in the Complex Systems Group with Danielle Bassett and the Mathematics department with Robert Ghrist. My work here focuses on building new tools for understanding complex networks, particularly those arising in human neuroscience. By developing natively mesoscale measures of network structure, we are making progress toward a mechanistic understanding of how brain networks robustly support intricate behaviors, with an eye toward intervening to repair or improve their function.

From 2012-2014, I was a postdoc in the mathematics department at the University of Nebraska -- Lincoln, working in the Mathematical Neuroscience Lab with Vladimir Itskov and Carina Curto (both now at Pennsylvania State University), where I developed new computational tools for understanding the intrinsic structure of data encoded in neural populations through observation of their activity, as well as new theoretical tools for understanding coding in neural networks.

I received my PhD in 2010 from the the University of Oregon, working with Dev Sinha on the topology of spaces of knots. For the 2010 and 2011 academic years, I was a visiting assistant professor at Willamette University, during which time I was also a Project NExT fellow.
