My research is in the field of set theory and involves using forcing and large cardinals to prove that certain statements are independent of the axioms of mathematics, ZFC.

See the VCU Analysis, Logic and Physics Seminar (ALPS) website for upcoming talks.

Currently, I am a visiting assistant professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Department of Mathematics. I was a postdoc at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences during the Thematic Program on Forcing and its Applications (Fall 2012). I was also a postdoc with Maxim Burke at the University of Prince Edward Island in PEI, Canada (Spring 2013).

I got my Ph.D. with Joel D. Hamkins at the CUNY Graduate Center.
