About me

Brian, Chicago, July 2015

I was born and raised in Washington, living most of my youth in a small town called Enumclaw, which makes its claim to being the Gateway to Mount Rainier. My interest in mathematics began in fifth grade, when my teacher discovered fifth grade mathematics was not challenging me, and proceeded to advanced me to seventh grade mathematics in the middle of the year. By the time I graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2000, I had taken AP Calculus (AB), and earned college credit by taking the AP exam.

I started attending Green River Community College in Auburn immediately after high school, receiving my Associate of Arts degree 2003, then transferred to Central Washington University. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in 2007, majoring in Mathematics.

At the behest of a few of my professors at Central Washington University, I decided to pursue graduate studies at Oregon State University, completing a Master of Science degree in February 2011, and continuing on to finish a Ph.D. in December 2015. My thesis is “Some Results in Single-Scattering Tomography.”

Aside from mathematics, my personal hobbies include hiking, photography, bowling, bicycling, and cooking. My hiking and photography go hand-in-hand, of course, as my preferred photgraphic subject is mountain scenery. In the kitchen, I have mastered Drew’s Famous Onion Dill Bread, berry pies, and various styles of pizzas.
