I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Smith College. I recently completed my Ph.D. at Boston University, working with advisor Bob Devaney. My research is in complex dynamical systems, which is the study of the behavior of points under iteration of a holomorphic function. I'm specifically interested in studying the complicated fractal structure of parameter spaces for singular perturbations of polynomials (see top image below). These are analogous to the well known Mandelbrot set for quadratic polynomial maps.
For Spring 2014 I am a Teaching Fellow for MA 225 Multivariable Calculus and MA 412 Complex Variables.
My office hours are Wednesdays from 3 to 4 and Fridays from 9 to 10.
