## Teaching

I teach a range of courses, mostly proof-based (or “pure math”) courses for undergraduate and graduate math majors. I also frequently teach multivariable calculus and introduction to proofs, and occasionally other classes: differential equations, linear algebra, and so on.

### Current courses, Spring 2021

Introduction to Linear Algebra Math 301

Real Analysis Math 414

Real Analysis Math 514

Graduate Seminar II: Professional Preparation Math 599

### Previous and upcoming courses

## Research

My area of research is commutative algebra and algebraic geometry (MSC 13 and 14).

I study algebraic geometry with actual polynomials,
especially **Waring rank**.

### Recent publications
