Teaching & Office Hours

In FA21, I am teaching two courses:

We'll talk more about this in class, and will pick a time based on a poll. I'll be holding virtual office hours this semester with regularly sceduled contact times. I'll be sitting at my computer, ready to help. The easiest way to get in touch is through email, but during office hours you can also reach me on the phone or have a video chat. My phone number and Zoom address are posted on Canvas. We will also be using the Canvas to host general class discussions. You can post, reply in a thread, and upvote questions. I'll generally wait a day or so before I answer questions to give your peers a chance to reply. More on this in class.

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!
