Welcome to my website! I am both a lecturer and graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. I graduated from Penn with a degree in the Philosophy of Science and Mathematics. My current research is primarily in the area of ancient Greek mathematics. I am also interested in the history and philosophy of mathematics in general. In the area of physics, I am studying early quantum theory and the Manhattan Project..

I am a non-traditional student at Penn. I worked in engineering after studying Physics in college. After a number of years in industry I returned to school for graduate work. I found my true interests lie in the history and philosophy of Mathematics and Physics and it is graduate work in these areas that occupy me.

I am also fond of teaching. I teach introductory computer programming to gap year students who are at Penn. I plan to continue teaching after finishing my graduate work at Penn as well.
