I am a graduate student at the University of North Texas, studying algebra. More specifically, I am researching invariant polynomials in a modular setting.
I received my B.S. from University of Texas at Austin, where my focus was on teaching. After teaching high school, I realized I loved teaching, but wanted to do it in a different setting. I went back to school, this time as a graduate student, and discovered a love of algebra. I had never done math research as an undergrad, but I have found it to be exciting and motivating.
When not working on school or research, I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, painting with acrylics, or playing strategy games. I also am an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, and romance. I often delve into other genres, such as dystopian fiction, but those are my main source of enjoyment. I particularly like the Valdemar series by Mercedes Lackey and the Shannara series by Terry Brooks.
