I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Gonzaga University. I recently earned my Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame where my adviser was Peter Cholak. My research has been in computability theory, specifically algorithmic randomness. I have been looking at a definition of algorithmically random closed sets based on the probability theory of set-valued random variables (commonly called RACS). A summary of my current work is available here (pdf).
