What about Work?!

After getting my undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College and a masters at the University of Chicago, I left Chicago (the air pollution bothered me) and moved to Cornell in Ithaca NY, and graduated with a Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1997. I'm proud of having led a gradate-student Calculus Reform initiative (see here for alternative link (broken)) while at Cornell.

I was a Temporary Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) during the 1997/1998 academic year, and spent two years teaching at a small college in Virginia before moving to SU in 2000 (located on the DE/MD/VA peninsula, see "my professional homepage" link below).

I've been involved in curricular reform, pedagogy, and preparing future K-12 teachers. My professional interests include these and RUME (Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education).

  • My other mathematical interests include DNA Computation and Topology.
