Welcome to my web page
For specific information about me, try one of these links:
I completed a two year rotation at the National Science Foundation as a Program Director in the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) in August 2014. I spent the academic year on sabbatical, catching back up on my graph theory research. In addition, I co-authored several grant proposals for a number of NSF programs and re-established my activity in a variety of mathematical societies, including the MAA and SIAM. I am presently Chair-elect of the Rocky Mountain Section of the MAA.
We recently were awarded (PI) an NSF special project (NSF 1539602) for studying the improvement of success by undergraduates in early mathemtics classes by improved training of GTAs. In addition, I am the co-PI on an NSF IUSE award (NSF 1504535) for studying the impact of formal STEM outreach on undergraduate STEM majors.
In the Fall, I will be teaching Math 3000 - Introduction to Abstract Mathematics and Math 4408/5408 - Graph Theory while in the Spring, I expect to teach Math 3000 and Math 4409/5409 - Combinatorics.
Graph Theory and Combinatorics is the area of my primary research interest. I have published recently on the following topics:
- Irregular Labelings of Graphs and Digraphs
- Cycle Structure in Combinatorial Structures
- Generalized Ramsey Theory
- Degree Sequences
- Saturation Number of a Graph
