About me:

I am in my fourth year as a Self Graduate Fellow at KU. The Self Graduate Fellowship is a four year fellowship that provides professional development training in the areas of communication, leadership, and management. The skills learned through this fellowship are valuable assets to those interested in pursuing a career in government or industry after completing a PhD. Find out more about the SGF and its unique opportunities here.

My research interests include numerical analysis and dynamical systems, and I am particularly interested in data assimilation and its applications to weather and climate modeling, and I am a member of the Math and Climate Research Network (MCRN). Currently, I am interested in gap filling for datasets, and more recently I've also been interested in data assimilation on adaptive meshes. My advisor is Erik Van Vleck.
I received my B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 2015, and my M.A. in Mathematics from KU in 2017.

Service and outreach are important to me; I am the graduate student organizer of the Math Awareness Month activities in April, where local fifth graders spend the day with graduate students doing fun math activities. I am also the past president of the KU chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (2016-2018), and past president for the Math Graduate Student Organization (2017-2018).
