I am a mathematician, an educator and the Chair of a great department with an outstanding faculty and staff. We have 43 permanent faculty, about 60 graduate students and over 300 undergraduate math majors. We offer strong graduate and undergraduate programs, both general and interdisciplinary, led by an award winning faculty. These programs have national and global reach.
I enjoy helping students learn about and discover mathematics, and I have taught a wide range of courses across all levels. I have advised many undergraduate and graduate students on a variety of research projects. My most recent educational project involved bringing 26 advanced undergraduates to Melbourne Australia to study mathematical modeling and scientific computing.
My research interests focus on numerical methods and analysis of a variety of problems. I seek new and exciting mathematical problems that arise in the world around us. Much of this work involves moving particles of one kind or another, partial differential equations or computational methods. My research has been applied to fluid flows, insect swarms, wired and wireless networks, and robotics.
