Thesis: Trisections of Smooth 4-manifolds with Boundary.

I am a UC Davis Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow working under Abby Thompson. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in May 2016 under the direction of David Gay. I am interested in all areas of low-dimensional Topology. My thesis work focuses on trisections of smooth 4-manifolds with boundary. I recently received the University of Georgia 2017 Graduate Student Excellence-in-Research Award in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

I am also a senior scholar of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) Doctoral Scholars Program, a program which aims to increase the number of minority Ph.D. students who seek careers in academia.
