I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Oregon in June, 2001, under the guidance of Professor Frank Anderson, and couldn't have been happier with my choices of school and advisor. My current research interests lie in the areas of abstract algebra and the popularizing of mathematics. I received my B.A. in Mathematics and English from Swarthmore College back in 1995, and obtained my Master's degree in Mathematics from the University of Oregon in 1997.
I have three beautiful kitties: Boo, and sisters Woozle and Snarge. I have also shared my life with Morgan, Yoshi, and Bear. It was not intentional that they are all color-coordinated.
|My research is in the areas of abstract algebra and the popularizing of mathematics (e.g., examining the intersections of math and art). An ongoing collaborative math-art project of mine is The Ideal Vacuum. Care to see my curriculum vitae?|
