I earned my B.S. with a double major in mathematics and computer science at Lebanon Valley College and my Ph.D. in mathematics with a minor in computational science from Penn State University. Since returning to LVC, my focus has been on computer science and, more recently, data science. During the summer, I run a coding camp for rising high school juniors and seniors. I am a Project NExT Fellow and am passionate about teaching and mentoring undergraduate students.
