Research and Teaching 
I have taught a wide
variety of mathematics courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels,
and also teach the university's secondary mathematics methods course each year.
I have published numerous articles in both mathematics and mathematics
education. My mathematical research area is finite group theory, specifically
number theoretic problems arising in finite groups. My mathematics education
interests lie mainly in bringing about curricular change at the precollege and
collegiate levels through the introduction of mathematics applications.
