**About Me**

I am a fifth-year graduate student at the
University of Virginia working toward my Ph.D
in mathematics under Andrew Obus. I am interested in questions in
algebraic geometry, number theory, and Galois theory. I am
currently working on problems related to branched covers of curves defined over
mixed-characteristic discretely-valued fields. Specifically, I am looking at
criteria for good reduction of covers to positive characteristic.

I have a CV!

*One-point covers of elliptic curves
and good reduction*, 2017. Preprint.
