Curriculum Vitae, as of October 2004

Research interests include applications of homotopy theory to the study of manifolds, in particular knot theory and transformation groups.

In spring of 2005, I am teaching MA 243: Statistics and an advanced graduate seminar.

My teaching interests involve different methods depending on the class. For students with little experience or confidence, clarity and a wealth of explicit examples are essential. For students ready to transition to more advanced mathematics, I like to use open-ended problems, experimentation and visualization.

I co-organized the Cascade Topology Seminar in the fall of 2003.
I am currently serving on the U of O faculty senate and my department's executive, library, and undergraduate advising committees.
