My CV - Updated 11/1/18.

Actually me, not Dom Deluise


My research is primarily in structural and extremal graph theory and STEM education, including extremal problems for degree sequences, cycles and linkages in graphs, minimal saturated graphs, university and K-12 teacher preparation, and benefits of STEM outreach for student organizers

Here is an updated list of my Publications and submitted papers.

Extramural Funding

I have been fortunate to obtain grants from several funders to support my research and work related to undergraduate student success. I am always happy to serve as a source of information about the grant-writing process, particulary in educational or programmatic settings, including sharing proposal materials whenever I am able. Like most folks, I write many more proposals than get funded, but that is part of the game.

The CU Denver STEAM Consortium

I currently serve as the Director of STEM Education Initiatives for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and as the faculty lead for the CU Denver STEAM Consortium, which is a group of faculty, staff and administrators dedicated to supporting STEAM Education at CU Denver. We are here to help in any way we can - please email me directly if you have questions or ideas!


If you are a graduate student interested in the Rocky Mountain - Great Plains Graduate Research Workshop in Combinatorics (GRWC) - please see our website, www.combinatoricsworkshop.org. The GRWC will be held in Lawrence, Kansas this year, from June 17 - 30, 2019. If you have any questions, you can contact me directly, or email info@combinatoricsworkshop.org.
