I am Vice Provost in the Division of Academic Affairs at Oklahoma State University, where I am a Professor of Mathematics. My research interest is commutative algebra. Here are my vita and publication list.

I spent 2004-2007 as a postdoc in the math department at the University of Missouri. I finished my Ph.D. in mathematics at Cornell University in the summer of 2004. At Cornell, I worked with Mike Stillman, studying Hilbert functions and the minimal graded free resolutions associated to them. I frequently use the computer algebra system Macaulay2, written by Dan Grayson and Mike Stillman.

In 1999, I graduated with degrees in mathematics and economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While at Illinois, I got interested in commutative algebra thanks to Graham Evans, my undergraduate mentor. I am originally from Lawrence, Kansas, and I graduated from Lawrence High School.
