Another semester is in the books! Seems like they pass faster each year...

Outside of class, I'll be at the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore in January.

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've been working hard behind the scenes with our awesome exec board and committees. The fall 2018 section meeting was a blast. I'm looking forward both to the spring 2019 section meeting and to passing the torch to the next Section chair in April.

For spring 2019, I'm teaching Combinatorics 2, Experimental Math, and Linear Systems and Matrices.
