About Me

Welcome to my home page! I am a postdoctoral lecturer at Northwestern University in beautiful Evanston, Illinois. In keeping with tradition, here is a fairly outdated picture of me outdoors in Pioneer Plaza of Dallas, Texas.

The typical scheme of black letters on a white background makes sense in the physical context of ink on paper, but causes eye strain on a backlit computer screen. The QWERTY keyboard was designed to prevent jamming of mechanical typewriters, which means our most frequently typed keys are far apart! Dvorak keyboard and dark mode are the way to go.

I worked with Bob Devaney at Boston University. I have been assimilated into the dynamics group at Northwestern.

Northwestern is awesome. Here are some links to some cool NU organizations with which I am involved.
