During my time at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I have had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of courses in several different styles. I have been the primary instructor for 9 different courses in 14 semesters, and I've taught in 4 different styles, including traditional lecture, Calculus & Mathematica, Merit Workshop, and web courses.

My main research interests lie in number theory. Although my dissertation research has focused on combinatorial number theory, I have also spent time studying topics in number theory, analytic number theory, and analysis. Additionally, my research is tied to generating functions and graph theory. I am currently working under the direction of Professor Bruce Reznick. For more information about my research, click here.
I live in Urbana with my husband, Brad, and our daughter Kajsa Isabel. We have two cats named Alameda and Snickers.
The mission of the Seminar for Women in Mathematics is to provide a relaxed, supportive and stress-free environment in which women graduate students, advanced undergraduate students, postdocs and faculty in the department can interact. It also provides a place where women may give talks and discuss mathematics at a level accessible to all graduate students.
