Following six years as a tenure-track mathematics professor, I am retraining as a data scientist. I teach mathematics part-time at Coconino Community College, and offer private tutoring in mathematics and statistics. I am also a PhD student in Ecological and Environmental Informatics at Northern Arizona University, where I am a member of the Paleoclimate Dynamics Lab. My current research involves environmental modeling of dust point sources related to land use and geomorphology. Outside of academia, my passions include reading (public lands, conservation, and quirky fiction, among other topics), trail and ultra running, bicycling, and cooking.
