Welcome to my homepage!  I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at James Madison University.  Below you can find pertinent course information and more about me.



    Past Courses:
        199:  Fa12 (01), Sp13(01), Fa(13)
        205:  Fa11 (03, 08), Sp12 (0103), Fa12 (01), Sp13(01)
        231:  Fa13 (01)
        238:  Fa12 (02)
        430:  Sp13(01), Fa13(01)


I do research in algebraic combinatorics.  Generally I am interested in using techniques from group representation theory to compute numerical invariants of interesting and beautiful combinatorial structures.  For more information, see my CV or papers.

Undergraduate Research Projects:

Here you can read about research projects I have done with undergraduates.

Recent Talks:


Before I gave my life to mathematics, I had a short stint as a dock builder.
