## Teaching and Mentorship

Mentor for the Directed Reading Program at the University of Virginia. Project on the relationship of partitions to the representation theory of the symmetric group. Fall 2022.

Mentor for University of Virginia REU in Number Theory, Summer 2022. Advised a project on congruences of McKay numbers of $S_n$, which ultimately resulted in a paper by A. Hoganson and T. Jaklitsch which can be found here:
