About

I am in my second year as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Manhattan College.  I got my PhD from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in May of 2012.  I enjoy working collaboratively on research projects, and discussing pedagogy with my colleagues.

Research

My research interests include combinatorial matrix theory, particularly properties of (0,1) matrices, and the connection between (0,1) matrices and graphs.  I am currently working on refining some results on exponents of matrices, as well as investigating properties of Alternating Sign Matrices.
