I earned my Ph.D. in math from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008. My research focused on graph theory, extremal and probabilistic combinatorics, and theoretical computer science. My dissertation was Delta-System Methods in Contemporary Graph Theory.
From 2008 to 2016, I was a member of the faculty at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in Aurora, IL. I taught precalculus, calculus, and post-calculus electives, including two new courses I developed, Graph Theory with Applications and Modern Geometry.
I also taught in the graduate program as an adjunct faculty member at Aurora University (2009-2015) and online and live classes for Art of Problem Solving (2016-2022).
Since May 2022, I have been a Staff Software Engineer at General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc.
I am CTO for Qwiz Inc. and the Great History Challenge.
