Curriculum Vita

(last updated September 11, 2014)

Summer/Fall 2014 Schedule

I am on sabbatical for Fall 2014. The best way to find me is email.

Current news: (8/18/14)

I am on sabbatical for the Fall 2014 semester.

I began August at Mathfest 2014 in Portland, Oregon, where I received a 2014 Henry L. Alder Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Beginning College or University Mathematics Faculty Member. The slides from my presentation can be found in the selected presentations and papers section of this website.

I just returned from a (completely non-math-related) trip to Alaska. It was AMAZING. If you haven't been there yet, I highly recommend it. It was quite possibly my favorite vacation ever.

Now it's back to work...

In addition to sabbatical release time for research, fall promises even more mathematical travel fun:

In spring 2015, I'll be back in the classroom, teaching Experimental Math and two sections of Calculus 2.
