## Research Statement |

I specialize in factorization theory, which is concerned with the decomposition of mathematical objects. A consistent thread that permeates my research program is the investigation of the decomposition of mathematical objects in order to determine such an objects larger structural properties. The mathematical objects of my focus include commutative rings, monoids, and semigroups. In the 2020-2021 academic year I am working with the Topology Geometry and Data Analysis group at The Ohio State University to broaden my research program thanks to support from NSF RTG #1547357.
