About Me

Ph.D. in Mathematics
August 2016 - May 2020

I earned a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina in the Department of Mathematics. Éva Czabarka and László Székely co-advised me in exploring graph invariants in triangulations and quadrangulations of the sphere.


Ph.D. Student in Computer Science
August 2018 - Current

I am currently enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of South Carolina in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Jason O'Kane advises me in discovering more about Visibility-Based Multi-Robot Pursuit-Evasion problems, including innovative sampling ideas.


Other Education
August 2009 - May 2015
