I am thrilled to be joining the Wheaton faculty this year after spending three years as a postdoc at Texas A&M University. I’m originally from Pennsylvania, where I graduated from Grove City College before earning a Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Tennessee. Generally speaking, my research is focused on finding simple and efficient representations of complicated functions, and I am excited to apply that knowledge to help develop a data science curriculum at Wheaton.
