My research interests are primarily the statistical applications and probabilistic foundations of topological data analysis (i.e. topological data science and stochastic topology). One of the ways this manifests is in the application of topological methods in imaging, both at a practical and theoretical level. Other work of mine branches off from these research interests, such as the behavior of U-statistics in the tails of distributions.
I obtained my Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2021. From there, I was a postdoctoral associate at Cornell University in the Center for Applied Mathematics and the Department of Statistics and Data Science from 2021-2023. I joined the University of Iowa as an Assistant Professor in August 2023.
