Welcome to my homepage!  I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at James Madison University.  Below you can find pertinent course information and more about me.


I do research in algebraic combinatorics.  Generally I am interested in using techniques from group representation theory to compute numerical invariants of interesting and beautiful combinatorial structures.  For more information, see my papers or cv.

Undergraduate Research Projects:

Here you can read about research projects I have done with undergraduates.



I own a couple of telescopes.
Before I gave my life to mathematics, I had a short stint as a dock builder.
