Teaching & Office Hours

In SP17, I am teaching MATH 103: The Nature of Mathematics, and MATH 341: Non-linear dynamics and Chaos.

I've posted a doodle poll to determine my office hours this semester, and the results will be posted later this week. 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!
