Brief Bio: 
 I studied math as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago where I was also involved in the Math Club and the Physical Sciences Student Advisory Committee. I received my Ph.D from Cornell University where my advisor was Mike Stillman. Then I was a postdoc at Texas A&M University under Hal Schenck. Now I am a professor at Cleveland State University.
I am also the advisor for the CSU Math Club. See http://www.csuohio.edu/mathclub for more information. 


Research Interests: 
 My research is in commutative algebra, in particular properties of minimal free resolutions over polynomial rings. Recently I have become interested in relations between commutative algebra and coding theory as well as commutative algebra and rational homotopy theory.
