Professor of Mathematics
Division of Mathematical Sciences

New teaching approaches multiply effectiveness...

"Even after 30 years in front of a blackboard, I still try different approaches to teaching as the modes of learning by students keep evolving. The applications of modern mathematics keep growing exponentially. Fortunately, mathematics is a dynamic subject; it never rests on its laurels.

Math is music to his ears....

"I had an article published that concerned connections between mathematics and music. It focused on a set of inversions that were used as compositional techniques by many classical composers, such as Bach and Beethoven."

Serving when it counts...

"I try to set an example of service that I believe is essential to the future of all of us. I have enjoyed participating in service trips. Nothing has made me prouder than watching our students volunteer their time and energy to help make the world a better place.

Adding to the body of knowledge...

My main field it topology, a kind of abstract arena for the study of the shape and structure of space in various dimensions... simply put, I love mathematics. Its infrastructure rests on logic and rational thought...but it holds a beauty as pure as any other art form.
