## Hello

I'm a **Krener Assistant Professor** in the Department of Mathematics, working in the areas of low-dimesional topology, knot theory, and DNA topology.

I also have a **joint appointment as a postdoc** in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, and I collaborate with the Topological Molecular Biology lab. My work there mainly concerns DNA topology, in particular the actions of certain enzymatic complexes on circular DNA molecules.

I received my Ph.D. in 2013 at the University of Texas, under the direction of Cameron Gordon. After that, I went to Rice University in Houston, TX, where I was an RTG postdoctoral instructor in geometry and topology. After Rice, I moved to sunny California.

**Also available upon request:** research statement and teaching statement
