Teaching & Office Hours

In FA19, I am teaching MATH 205: Introductory Calculus I, and MATH 248: Computers & Numerical Algorithms

My (initial) office hours in SP19 will be:

My hope is that my students can attend at least one regularly schedule office hour a week if needed. If this is not the case, please let me know and I will modify my calendar. If you'd like to make an appointment for time not regularly scheduled, please check my weekly calendar for an opening and send me an email request. I'm also often in my office, so feel free to stop in whenever my door is open.

In previous semesters at JMU, I've taught:

Research Interests

I am interested in applying mathematics to physical problems. I have worked on problems from atmospheric science, coupled multi-physics, porous media, and nonlinear waves. I'm currently thinking about analytic continuation and ODE. I use both analytic and numeric techniques, while drawing on aspects of dynamical systems, PDE theory, functional analysis and numerical analysis. More specific information can be found here. Links to papers are found here.

I'm also involved in the M-cubed program, a six-week summer National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (NREUP) funded by the MAA. Read more about the NREUP, and about the JMU M-cubed program. While the bad news is that we are currently unable to apply for the external funding that supports this program, the good news is that we are ineligible because JMU is national REU site!
