My CV - Updated 12/20pwd/16.

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

My research is currently funded by a Simons Foundation Collaboration Grant for Mathematicians. This a great program, and I would be happy to share my application materials with anyone who might find them useful.

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

Community STEM Clubs

I am the program director for the CU Denver Community STEM Clubs (CSC) Program , which is organizing or assisting with several STEM clubs at local schools. We are currently funded by an NSF IUSE grant (DUE #1504535). CSC's excellent undergraduate and graduate Outreach Fellows are working to bring STEM to life for students all over greater Denver.


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 Denver this year, from July 9 - 22, 2017. If you have any questions, you can contact me directly, or email info@combinatoricsworkshop.org.
