## Objectives and Interests

I intend to pursue an academic career in the field of mathematics studying geometric topology, and to be an active contributor to the mathematics and education communities.

## Education

**Doctor of Philosophy, Mathematics,**from SUNY University at Albany, Received May 2019

GPA: 3.9

Advisor: Boris Goldfarb

****Dissertation: Coarse Geometric Coherence Notions

This dissertation relates coarse geometry and algebraic K-theory in topology/geometry. It investigates asymptotic dimension, decomposition complexity, Property A, coarse embeddability, and generalizations of coherence, with the goal of determining sufficient conditions to satisfy the Borel conjecture regarding the rigidity of aspherical manifolds.

**Master of Arts, Mathematics,**from SUNY University at Albany, Received May 2016

GPA: 3.943

**Bachelor of Science, Mathematics**

**(Pure Mathematics Concentration),**from Fordham University, Received May, 2014

GPA: Overall 3.571, Math 3.627
