About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at California State University, San Bernardino. I joined the faculty at CSUSB in 2016.

I am interested in many mathematical areas. I enjoy using algebraic tools from linear algebra, number theory, and group theory to study problems in geometry and cryptography. For both teaching and research, I frequently am programming in Sage. I always use GeoGebra in my teaching. I am very interested in research in math education. I am currently writing some texts in linear algebra and geometry.

I am also interested in theories on learning and teaching of mathematics, especially as they relate to linear algebra.

Previously, I had been a Postdoctoral Visiting Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oklahoma. I grew up in Denver, Colorado, received my undergraduate degrees in mathematics and physics from the University of Chicago, and my Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Michigan.

In the fall of 2022 I am coordinating all sections of:

Math 140x - Preparation for Calculus
Math 2210 - Calculus 1

Advising

I am currently advising master theses / independent studies in:

Arithmetic Hyperbolic Surfaces

Cryptography and Programming
