“Teachers have three loves: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together”

– Hayden Scott.

*I am passionate about making mathematics more welcoming, more accessible, and less intimidating.*

I belief mathematical endeavors are human endeavors, and they should be pursued in accordance with the axioms of *Professor Federico Ardila*:

**Axiom 1.** Mathematical potential is equally present in different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.**Axiom 2.** Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.**Axiom 3.** Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.**Axiom 4.** Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

During the academic year 2023 – 2024 I am excited to be a Project NExT fellow in the Green23 cohort! This is a is a professional development program for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences.

**Fall 2023**
