I was born and raised in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.  Although I was keen on becoming a visual artist throughout most of high school, the allure of precalculus during my senior year was too strong to ignore.  Upon arriving at SUNY New Paltz, I took calculus for fun while continuing to major in art.  By the time I completed my B.A. I was focused almost exclusively on mathematics.  Shortly thereafter, I earned an M.A. at the City College of New York and went on to pursue a doctorate at SUNY Stony Brook. 

 

Since then I have held postdoctoral positions at the University of Michigan and Tufts University.  I am currently an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at UMass Boston.
