I want to share my love of mathematics with others. Math is at the core of engineering and doesn’t have to be intimidating.

It’s a universal language that can help unite people from different fields to come up with better solutions to important problems. I’m teaching MATLAB for scientific computing this summer and I hope participants in this workshop walk away understanding that there are a number of simple mathematical equations and algorithms that can be used to facilitate interdisciplinary research.

I was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, near the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. We were surrounded by nature, so my siblings and friends and I spent a lot of time exploring the wilderness and getting lost in the woods.

I never planned to become a mathematician. I liked math growing up because it made sense to me – plug this number into this equation here, and you’ll get an output that follows some predictable logic.
