I am a PhD student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My primary research interest is quick change-point detection. In particular, I am interested in the design of practical online change-point detection algorithms and the analysis of their operating characteristics. I am advised by Georgios Fellouris.

Before coming to UIUC, I was an undergraduate / graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. My thesis, which developed group-theoretic aspects of a class of cellular automata, was written under the supervision of Dr. Henry Segerman. I completed several other projects as an undergraduate including work in commutative algebra and algebraic aspects of differential equations. My interest in algebra grew out of countless discussions with Dr. Chris Francisco and Dr. Jeff Mermin throughout the early years of my undergraduate education.
