  • Office: MONT 239 (but I won't be there)
  • Office hours: During the summer, there are no in-person office hours. However, the professor and TAs will host some virtual office hours for MATH 2210Q during that online class. Times will be announced on the main HuskyCT page. We are also happy to respond to questions and comments within the discussions forums or via email, which we check regularly.

Email is generally the best way to reach me. I try to block out most mornings for research and writing (or it languishes).

In Summer 2017 I am teaching Math 2210 (Applied Linear Algebra).

I am currently a tenured associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut in Storrs (a very safe place to live though others may be better), where I arrived in Fall 2005. My main research interests are in algebraic and enumerative combinatorics, and I've also done a good deal of work in educational outreach. From Fall 2005 through Fall 2012, I also directed the Quantitative Learning Center (Q Center) as 50% of my appointment. Here is a partial list of UConn acronyms that I've needed to learn since I arrived. How many can you name without looking?

Before coming to UConn I held faculty positions in the math departments of the following academic institutions:

I was a student at:

Of course, my life has always been measured in academic years.

Along the way I directed, taught in, and/or participated in a number of summer programs. Including
