My Current State

I am a mathematics graduate student at Colorado State University. My current interests lie in understanding properties of stochastic processes with an eye toward increasing efficiency of simulating molecular dynamics. Most recently, I am exploring the topics of estimator statistics and measure theoretic probability to better understand under what circumstances certain estimators performs best.

My Previous States

As an undergraduate, I majored in physics first and then added mathematics. After my sophomore year, I enjoyed a summer research opportunity on near-threshold photoproduction of negative pions at the MAX-lab facility in Lund, Sweden. After that summer, however, mathematics slowly won over my heart. By time I was finishing up my senior year, my research interests rested in number theory. Those interests culminated in a paper which attempts to further conjectures based on the Cohen-Lenstra heuristics. This paper, co-authored by Dr. Cassie Williams, is currently undergoing the publication process.

My Future States

While I am currently enjoying academia, my intention is not to remain here. I am hoping to finish attaining my masters and doctorate by 2020. After that, my intentions are to seek employment in a business or government setting where I can turn my mind to more immediate applications which have mathematical solutions waiting to be discovered.
