M.S., 2005, University of Denver, Mathematics B.S., 2002, University of Denver, Major: Computer Science, Minors: Mathematics, FrenchYour philosophy of teaching:I believe in having an interactive classroom. Yes, I lecture some, but I also want my students to dig deep and solve problems in class and out. My goal is to show my students that mathematics is not only useful, but is also extremely beautiful, creative and a lot of fun.Why did you decide to teach?I originally went to school to study computer science and thought I wanted to be a programmer, but I kept taking math classes too. Eventually, I took my first course in abstract algebra and I was just hooked by mathematics. After thinking about it, I decided I didn't want to be a programmer, but wanted to show all of the beautiful mathematics that I was discovering to other people. I love teaching and couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.Credentials/career path After I graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Denver, I was hired by Southeast and have worked here ever since. I started at Southeast in fall 2009, was named the Mathematics Graduate Program Coordinator in fall 2010, earned tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 2014 and was named interim chairperson of the Department of Mathematics in January 2018.Professional Highlight2009-2010 Project NExT fellow of the Mathematical Association of America.Regular judge for the Undergraduate Research Poster Session at the AMS/MAA Joint Mathematics Meetings every January.Award/Honor/Recognition Member of Phi Beta KappaOrganization with which you are involved Mathematical Association of America (MAA) American Mathematical Society (AMS)Most Recent/Notable Published WorkPattern Avoidance in the Rook Monoid with L.

Your philosophy of teaching:I have always strived for excellence in teaching and am not deterred to maintain high standards. The aim has been to impart quality instruction and raise the level of understanding as well as the achievement of my students. Throughout my teaching career, I have worked hard to provide excellent course material in the class room, motivated students to achieve their excellence in performance, and provided extra input and help to any student who either needed help or was curious to advance further understanding of the subject matter.I set high standards and expectations for my students and raise their confidence in themselves. In imparting new knowledge and in teaching problem solving I stress critical thinking. By engaging them in active classroom participation, I lead my students from one step to the next in a productive way. By making them to work on a sufficient number of problems in the classroom they get the satisfaction of time well spent and they achieve a drastic improvement in their capability.Finally, I encourage questions from my students and always remind them that they should not leave my class with a doubt in their head. I always make it a point how important mathematics is both in real life as well as in understanding our universe.Why did you decide to teach?I was inspired by good teachers and so decided to make teaching as my career.Credentials/career path Have reviewed more than 120 papers for Math Reviews a publication of the American Math Society.Professional HighlightRefereed papers for SIAM Journal of Mathematical Analysis Missouri Journal of Mathematical Sciences Indian Journal of Mathematics Arabian Journal of Science and Engineering Proceedings of The Indian National Academy of ScienceAward/Honor/Recognition Listed in: American Men and Women of Science (1986 ---).
