About

I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Baker University. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Kansas in May 2022. I am interested in commutative algebra and its connections to additive number theory and combinatorics. I enjoy thinking about the stratification of non-Gorenstein Cohen-Macaulay local rings -- especially in dimension one -- such as numerical semigroup rings.

Outside of academia, I enjoy music composition, music criticism, exercise, and outlandish humor. I am a trained jazz drummer and freelance multi-instrumentalist. Over the last decade, I have recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered many records -- both as a solo artist and in collaboration with others. Listen to some of those below. Sufjan Stevens is my favorite musician.


"Patience. Belief. Love. We are brothers Zach and Dylan Beck. Heidi Klum's Bangs began as a bedroom psych folk project in early 2009 and soon evolved into a full-on, multi-instrumental indie rock act in the vein of Neutral Milk Hotel, Circulatory System, Beirut, and Sufjan Stevens. With our ethereal instrumentals and stream-of-consciousness lyrics, we create a musical universe unlike any." Listen to Heidi Klum's Bangs on Spotify or BandCamp.

"If you're more or less wanting to get into some real specific patterns and different things -- some wind-swept looks and different stuff like that -- you need look no further whatsoever. A Real Echoey Approach is yet another project from the fertile mind of Dylan Beck (Heidi Klum's Bangs, Carlo dell'Aquila, SpellChek), whose aim is to conjure inexplicable beauty in fragments of noise." Listen to A Real Echoey Approach on Spotify or BandCamp. Read this interview with Rex Talyetiwhoop.

"Out of darkness, let us sprawl and shed these callous, hollowed shells. Uniting once again, Dylan Beck and Danilo Uomo are Carlo dell'Aquila. Conceived originally as a spiritual successor to late-era Talk Talk, Carlo dell'Aquila combines the haunting lyricism of Sufjan Stevens with the swirling dream pop of the Antlers; the result is a sound that demands to be heard." Listen to Carlo dell'Aquila on Spotify or BandCamp.

Listen to my instrumental hip hop collection on SoundCloud.

Keep up with what I'm listening to at the moment.
