The world is divided into two types of people: those that hate math and those who truly appreciate it. I hope to convert the individuals that hate math. For those who appreciate it I hope to enrich their abilities. It is also my goal to be more than just a student’s math professor. I hope to be a resource that they can not only turn to, but feel comfortable and want approach me with whatever issues arise during their college experience.
Degrees and Certifications
B.S. Hofstra University; Ph.D. Wesleyan University
Teaching Responsibilities: I teach all levels of math but the course I teach most often is statistics for decision making. My favorite upper level math courses to teach are real analysis and geometry. This current year I am also teaching courses within Sacred Heart’s new core: first year logic and a first year seminar with the topic being math and sports.
Research Interests & Grants
Research Interests & Grants: My core areas of research are Kleinian groups and hyperbolic geometry. I also have interest in voting theory and whatever topics students wish to work on with me. Currently I have the following grant: New Hampshire Institute of Politics Jeanne D. Smith Research Incentive Fund and I am working on voting theory.
