I'm the CEO of Arcascope
. We make science-backed apps to help people fix their sleep and circadian rhythms. I got my Ph.D in Applied Mathematics from the University of Michigan
in 2016 and have studied the mathematics of sleep for the last ten years. Outside of sleep, I'm co-editor of Political Geometry
, a volume on the mathematics of gerrymandering, with Moon Duchin. My webcomic, Imogen Quest
, is available online, as is my mini-comic You Can Try Again
. Read more on my blog

Mathematical modeling of subconscious vision
My Ph.D work focused on mathematical modeling subconscious vision; i.e. any visual processing that occurs without our active awareness. Under this umbrella, I've worked on optimal control of the circadian clock, model identifiability from a differential algebra perspective, modeling retinal cells, and mobile app data collection.
As part of my research, I developed the mobile application Entrain
, which provides mathematically optimal schedules of light and dark to travelers crossing time zones. Entrain is free, and users can opt-in to anonymously submit their data back to the University of Michigan for research purposes.
I've taught Calculus I and II and been a course assistant for Calc III. I've also helped teach summer programs for M-Sci
, and created a camp for MIDAS
helps travelers get over jet lag by recommending when to seek and avoid light.
is an iOS app that animates line drawings by making them very slightly wiggly.
is a web and iOS app that automatically turns images into step-by-step drawing guides.
A VR-compatible app for low vision patients developed with Matt Jacobs and Kwoon Wong.
I Am Calculus
An app my students and I made during M-Sci 2014 that teaches basic definitions needed for calculus through straight-forward multiple choice questions.
At Which Location
A goofy "Where's Waldo?" generator I made. You provide a picture, it adds a red and white hat to a random face it finds.
Turns blocks of text into a multiple choice quiz to make it so you have to think while you read.
Old Sleep Studies
I maintain a selection of some of my favorite old sleep studies, one of which inspired 205
Space Invaders-style game made with David Renardy to teach Calc II students which integration technique to try.
Shame yourself into writing by starving a cute pony when you don't (Caveat: Have not touched in 5 years; probably won't work on new machines).
