I am originally from a small town in Minnesota and moved to Tucson, Arizona to pursue a PhD in pure math at the University of Arizona. I enjoy most out door activities including hiking, rock climbing, and jogging. My hobbies include reading and puzzles (both jigsaw and logic puzzles).
I enjoy traveling and seeing different areas. My family has taken many road trips around the US and Canada and when I studied in Moscow for a semester, I was able to take a short trip around Europe. When I travel, I like to try new things, especially local food, and find it fascinating to meet new people.
