Curriculum Vita(last updated July 30, 2018)Fall 2018 Schedule
Current news: (8/6/18)Summer "break"? It's been busy around here! Between running the 2018 Valparaiso Experience in Research by Undergraduate Mathematicians (VERUM) program, advising a VERUM project, and advising an ongoing research project with Valpo students this summer, there was plenty to do!Four of my summer students joined me in New Hampshire in July for the International Conference on Permutation Patterns. I attended Mathfest 2018 in Denver in early August. There, I was a panelist for a Project NExT panel on "Engaging Students in Undergraduate Research: The Role of Effective Advising". In other news, Michael Dorff, Allison Henrich, and I are writing a book entitled A Mathematician's Practical Guide to Mentoring Undergraduate Research that's nearing completion after several years of work. You can get a preview in the paper Successfully Mentoring Undergraduates in Research: A How To Guide for Mathematicians, which was published in PRIMUS last year. I'm the 2018-2019 chair of the Indiana Section of the MAA. I'm working hard behind the scenes with our awesome exec board and committees to plan for the coming year. I'm particularly excited about the speaker lineup for our Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 meetings. For fall 2018, I'm teaching Calculus 1 (two sections) and Combinatorics 1.
