I am currently a senior at Saint Michaelís College. I am from Rutland, Vermont. I love to spend time with my family and two dogs, watch movies, and read. However, my passion is mathematics. This is why when I heard about the opportunity to work at Saint Michaelís for the summer conducting mathematical research I applied for the opportunity. During the semester I conducted preliminary research, and during the summer, worked full time. My main focus was to explore an area of graph theory that was related to DNA sequencing. Thus, I settled upon the circuit partition polynomial. Ultimately I wanted to explore as many aspects of the polynomial as closely as I could in the time allotted. The intended result of the research was to be able to produce a paper on the circuit partition polynomial that could be understood and appreciated by undergraduate mathematicians. Send Email
