I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Agnes Scott College. My research interests are in dynamical systems with a focus on entropy and information theory. I am passionate about teaching and developing well-rounded students who can apply their classroom learning to their daily lives.
Employ effective and inclusive pedagogy to teach five undergraduate mathematics courses per year on topics including calculus, proof writing, differential equations, real analysis, math for the liberal arts, voting theory, game theory, and applied mathematical consulting. All courses emphasize development of leadership skills including oral and written communication in STEM.
[Tenured and promoted from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor in 2019.]
Worked with a team of Googlers to lead the pilot of a ten-week, full-time immersive experience, where students learned the fundamentals of machine learning to prepare for employment at the intersection of data science and the individual student’s field of interest.
The CDVL is a resource for staff, students and faculty to cultivate digital literacy. The center employs staff and student tutors who help facilitate the exploration of problem solving options that advance digital and visual skills for academic projects and ideas.
Taught a mathematical problem solving course to gifted middle school students in an intensive, overnight-camp environment for four weeks.
Instructor with full course responsibility for twelve college courses including college algebra, the calculus sequence, topics in mathematics, and linear algebra for applications.
