I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, and I attended Detroit Public Schools for my secondary and most of my elementary education. I then enrolled at Michigan State University, graduating in 2005 with a B.S. with High Honors in Mathematics.

During my time at MSU, I participated in an alternative spring break program (volunteer work) in Puebla, Mexico in 2002, and a Race Relations summer study abroad program in South Africa in 2003. I still have great interests in race relations and diversity, especially in increasing the representation of underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences.

After my second year of graduate school at Michigan, I was given the opportunity to complete my research work at the University of Manchester with my thesis adviser, who transferred to the UK in Fall 2007. I also returned to Michigan to teach for one semester per year for the last three years of my program. So I moved...a lot! Naturally, this furthered my interest in travelling.

I was a postdoc at the University of Washington in Seattle during the 2011-2012 year and I was at MSRI for the Spring 2013 program on Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory I'm currently at MIT for three years (Fall 2012 - Spring 2015). My summers are set aside for working for the EDGE program and attending conferences and workshops. I was also the coordinator for PRIMES circle, a high-school enrichment program at MIT (Fall 2012-Spring 2014). For more information, see Mentors in Mathematics.
