- I am the organizer for the Math 131 placement exam: Informaton is here.
- In Spring 2022, I am teaching two sections of Math 300, Introduction to Mathematical Thinking.
- In Fall 2021, I co-taught a new course Math 397C, Mathematical Computing. We used the first six weeks to teach Python and then used Python to explore and solve mathematical questions as part of four projects. One project was to compute the states of the 2x2x2 Rubik's cube as a permutation group, then calculate a minimal solution to solve any state of the cube (and find the maximum number of steps needed for any state). Other projects covered billiards, math finance, and percolation theory. We made use of the NumPy package in many of the projects.
- Last year I was the Associate Head for Curriculum and the Undergraduate Program Director. Before that, I served 4 years as the Chief Undergraduate Advisor for the department.
- In 2018-9 I was on sabbatical in Princeton, NJ, where I was a Visiting Researcher at Princeton University.
