I am a PhD student at LSU working under the supervision of Dr. Milen Yakimov. My research interests are in noncommutative algebra, noncommutative algebraic geometry, and algebraic categorification. Specifically, my current work deals with:

- defining the prime (and completely prime, semiprime, and primitive) spectrum of a 2-category, which is a categorical version of the classical notion of the prime (and completely prime, semiprime, and primitive) spectrum of a noncommutative ring;
- investigating the role of the different categorical prime spectra in the context of algebraic categorification of noncommutative algebras;
- constructing a specific categorification of the quantized coordinate rings of Richardson varieties of arbitrary symmetric Kac-Moody algebras.
