I'm a postdoc in the Groups and Dynamics Research Training Group
at the University of Texas at Austin
. I work with Lewis Bowen
I work in ergodic theory, where measure-preserving dynamical systems are common objects of study. The entropy of a system, which measures how random it is, can sometimes be used to determine if two systems are isomorphic. I have constructed maps between a variety of systems, influenced by entropic results.
I have two beautiful cat children, Rocky
and Goose. As the eldest, Rocky has assisted me in creating teaching materials. Some samples are posted below.
I got my PhD from the University of Kansas. Originally, I'm from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area.
I use she/her and they/them pronouns.

Things I'm co-organizing
Teaching and outreach
Over the Summer 2020 semester I designed, created, and taught an asynchronous online Calculus III course at the University of Kansas. Here are a couple of the videos Rocky and I made for the course, on arc length and vector fields.
During the Fall 2019 semester I worked with Justin Lyle under Emily Witt to create active learning investigation modules for Honors Calculus II, described here.
I am a Science Mentor for Frontiers for Young Minds. If you are, or know of someone (or a group), between the ages of eight and fifteen interested in reviewing a math paper for the journal, contact me for more info.
