I am generally interested in the study of effective communication of mathematical ideas to students, educators, and the general public. This primarily includes designing, implementing, and refining various methods for teaching math. My current work includes studies on college calculus, graduate teaching assistants, and teacher professional development. I am also interested in cryptography, number theory, and interdisciplinary collaborations.
I have a range of teaching experiences from introductory math for non-majors to graduate courses for math educators. I use a mix of active learning strategies, especially inquiry-based learning, metacognition, and peer instruction.
I currently serve as the Chair of the Master of Mathematics (MM) Curriculum Committee, a Faculty Senator, and a member of the Math Department’s Lecturer Advisory Committee.
