I am interested in discrete mathematics, operations research, and functional
analysis. My current research, with Randy Shull and Ann Trenk, involves aspects
of partially ordered sets and interval orders.
I retired from teaching in 2015. I taught courses across the mathematics curriculum, including calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, real analysis, and optimization / operations research.
