I am an alumna of The College of William and Mary (1998, BS Chemistry and Mathematics) where I was a Goldwater Scholar and the inaugural recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Prize in Natural Philosophy. I began my graduate work at Caltech in the lab of Aron Kupperman with the support of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I joined the Caltech Math Department in 2000 and received my PhD in number theory in 2005 under the direction of Matthias Flach with the support of the ARCS Foundation and the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund. For two years, I was a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Brandeis University. In 2007, I was hired as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science at the University of Idaho. I earned tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 2016 and was awarded the College of Science Renfrew Faculty Fellowship in 2020.
