I enjoy cooking, playing board games with friends, and spending time with my wife Cassidy.

Mentor’s perspective:  

My mentors have helped me become a better student.  They have been helpful in all areas of study within the program, and have guided me through everything from mathematical theory to computer coding.

Perks of the program: 

Due to the smaller size of our program, it is much easier to learn one on one from professors in our department.  They are consistently available and willing to help.  This program is the right fit for me because I have been able to develop personal relationships with many of my professors.

Favorite AU memory:

My favorite AU memory is learning that I had passed my PhD Comprehensive Exams
