I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oklahoma. Broadly speaking, my research lies in the field of Topological Data Analysis. My postdoc mentor is Miroslav Kramar.
I earned my PhD in mathematics from Michigan State University in May 2020. During my PhD under the supervision of Jose Perea, my work revolved around the study of toroidal dynamical systems. I made contributions to the development of persistent homology by proving Künneth-type theorems, to topological time series analysis by further developing the theory of sliding window embeddings, and to multiscale data coordinatization in topological spaces by proving stability theorems for circular coordinates.
