Curriculum Vitae

I am a Benjamin Peirce and NSF postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. I graduated in 2015 from the University of Michigan with a Ph.D. in mathematics. My advisors were Rob Lazarsfeld and Karen Smith. I spent the academic year 2015-16 as an NSF postdoctoral fellow at University of Utah, where I worked with Aaron Bertram. My research interests are in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. I am mostly interested in problems in classical algebraic geometry, especially those dealing with vector bundles and linear systems.



This semester, I am teaching math 252, Linear Series and Positivity of Vector Bundles, a graduate topics course.


Before graduate school, I was an undergraduate math major at the University of Chicago. Prior to that, I went to Saint Paul Central High School in Saint Paul, Minnesota. However, from grades seven through eleven, I took my math classes through UMTYMP (University of Minnesota Talented Youth Mathematics Program). I enthusiastically endorse UMTYMP, and cannot overstate its impact on me mathematically.

Outside of math, I love rock climbing (sport climbing and bouldering) and vegan cooking. My husband, Ian Shipman, and I have two cats named Leo and Minnie.
