I'm Tegan (she/her), a sixth year PhD student at Cornell University, where I am advised by Robert Kleinberg. My general interests are in theory of computing, particularly algorithms, networking/graph theory, and combinatorics.
Before Cornell I recieved a B.A. double major in math and computer science at Carleton College, where I was advised by Layla Oesper and Mark Krusemeyer. I became interested in combinatorial optimization and theory of computing while studying abroad at Budapest Semesters in Mathematics. I then spent my senior year researching with a group of students under David Liben-Nowell.
I was raised in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside the nation's capital. Outside computer science and math, I studied abroad in Japan through the Hokkaido International Foundation. I also enjoy west coast swing dancing and drinking lots of tea.
