## 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.
