About Me

I am a fifth year graduate student in the Mathematics Ph.D. program at Iowa State University. My Ph.D. advisor is Michael Young.

Currently, I am looking for a job in academia (preferably a Post Doc position). Please reach out to me at jkritsch "at" iastate "dot" edu if you are interested in my application materials.


I have three main research interests: extremal graph theory, anti-Ramsey theory, and zero forcing. Click here to see my publications. I am always looking for new projects and collaborators!


My teaching experience includes core offerings and service classes: Calculus I-III, Business Calculus, Introduction to Proofs (for a full lists, contact me for my CV). I have experience mostly with small recitations, but have also have some experience with large lectures.


I started Redefining Math, a monthly program at the Ames Public Library. The goal of the program is to facilitate positive experiences doing math by examining puzzles and games. To read more about it, see this article on the Iowa State University website.
