Research Description 

My research interests are in graph theory. In particular, understanding and analyzing hereditary classes of graphs (classes closed under induced subgraphs). I am particularly interested in some special cases and weakenings of the Gyarfas-Sumner conjecture, the Erdos-Hajnal conjecture, Hadwiger's conjecture, and the Hoang-McDiarmid conjecture. 

Degree: PhD in mathematics, 2012, The Ohio State University
