I received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2014. My advisor was John Stembridge. My undergraduate work was at The Ohio State University. Before starting graduate school I spent a year in Utrecht, Netherlands, as part of the MRI Masterclass on Quantum groups, affine Lie algebras and their applications. Unfortunately the program seems to have now died due to funding issues.
Outside of work, I enjoy hiking/backpacking, travel, photography, and climbing. I am married to Elena Yudovina.
