Education

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Georgia in 2012. My research area is geometry. As an undergraduate, I double-majored in Mathematics and Psychology (Union University, 2005). I am currently enrolled as a part-time graduate student pursuing a master's degree in statistics at the University of Georgia.

Courses

This semester I am teaching MATH 3200 (Intro to Higher Mathematics) and MATH 4950 (PIC Math). I have taught several other courses at UGA, including MATH 1060 (Mathematics for Decision Making), MATH 1113 (Precalculus), MATH 2500 (Multivariable Calculus), MATH 5001 (Arithmetic and Problem Solving), and MATH 5200 (Foundations of Geometry I).

Service

I am currently the Calculus I Coordinator for the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia.

Scholarly Interests

I am interested in the teaching and learning of college mathematics. While in graduate school, I completed the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics Education. Through my involvement in Project NExT (Brown '13), I continue to learn about collegiate mathematics teaching. If you are interested in college mathematics teaching, I would love to talk to you about it.

Recognition and Awards

In 2020, I won the Sandy Beaver Excellence in Teaching Award from the Franklin College at the University of Georgia. In 2019, I received the Departmental Award for Outstanding Instruction. In 2013, I was selected as an MAA Project NExT fellow. I received the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Award from the University of Georgia in 2009.

Personal

When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, Pinterest-ing away the hours, reading, and watching cheesy sci-fi.
