Ever since the fifth grade when I learned about exponents, I've wanted to be
a mathematician. I had excellent math teachers all through middle school
and high school, who inspired me to want to know more. I just loved math
and couldn't get enough of it. I'm still that same way but I've moved past
the simplicity of exponents into studying differential geometry. I
graduated from Brigham Young University with my Bachelor of Science degree
in Mathematics. I'm currently finishing my Master of Science degree in Math
as well with an emphasis in differential geometry. While an undergrad, I
wrote this paper while working with Denise Halverson on some questions about
network paths in the hyperbolic plane. We took a tangent and started
working with non-convex domains in the Euclidean plane. I conjectured and
proved a statement about connected non-convex domains with smooth boundary
and wrote this paper. Since that time, I've continued to work with Dr.
Halverson as one of my Thesis committee members.
