Areas of Expertise

  • Topology
  • Knot Theory


My research area is in knot theory, specifically in the relationships between diagrammatic constructions such as crossing changes and more algebraic invariants such as the Alexander polynomial. I also enjoy making hexaflexagons, admiring plants, watching movies, swimming, playing games, drawing, and painting!
