I am a mathematician at Penn State specializing in mathematical logic.

In 2013, I received my Ph.D. in Mathematical Science from Carnegie Mellon University under Jeremy Avigad.

I am interested in the nontrivial interactions between computable mathematical structure and classical mathematical structure. To this aim, I work on problems in algorithmic randomness, reverse mathematics, effective mathematics, and quantitative analysis (including metastability).
