I am an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Kenyon College. My research interests include geometric measure theory, analysis, and differential geometry in Banach spaces. In particular, I have recently become interested in applications of these fields to image processing (and I've been working to bring this material into the classroom). This spring I am excited to be teaching Elements of Statistics and Data Analysis!
I received my Ph.D. in August 2009 from the University of Michigan, where my advisors were Juha Heinonen and Mario Bonk. Prior to my graduate studies, I spent four years in the Air Force conducting statistical analyses and developing mathematical models of personnel data.
In addition to teaching and studying mathematics, I enjoy throwing pottery, running, and traveling to new places.
