Teaching

Sharing mathematics outside the classroom

I enjoy sharing mathematics with people of varying backgrounds and interests, from students in elementary to graduate school. I have given colloquium-style talks on the topics below; contact me if you are interested in having me give a talk.
Climbing (or finding paths) through trees (Introduction to Computability/Graph Theory)
Finding Order in the Unknown: The Erdos-Szekeres Theorem (Combinatorics/Bolzano-Weierstrass theorem)
Gersgorin's circle's and Cassini's Oval's: Cheap ways to estimate eigenvalues (Linear Algebra)
Computability of linear orderings on groups (Introduction to Computability/Ordered groups)
