My research interests include commutative ring theory, where I specialize in factorization theory. I am particularly interested in questions involving the preservation of factorization properties in extensions of commutative rings. My doctoral thesis focused on unique factorization in polynomial rings with zero divisors. More recently, I have explored factorization in the settings of numerical semigroup algebras as well as monoid rings with zero divisors.
In the 2020-2021 academic year I will be working with the Topology Geometry and Data Analysis group at The Ohio State University studying applications of persistent homology to data analysis thanks to support from NSF RTG #1547357.
