### Pronouns: she or they.

My main research interest is in noncommutative algebra, and in particular quantized coordinate rings / quantum algebras and their semi-classical limits. At the moment I'm mostly interested in H-primes in quantum matrices, and total non-negativity in real matrices and the Grassmannian.

You can find my PhD thesis here. If that's too long a read, you can see what the critics think here.

For a shorter introduction to my work on division rings, I suggest you try this poster; it is aimed at interested non-mathematicians and comes with a dramatic fire backdrop.

The slides from my JMM 2017 talk are here.
