My graduate work was done in the area of ordinary differential equations, with applications to biology and chemistry. Since graduating, my scholarly work has focused on wavelets, large data sets, and applications of mathematics. I have a website devoted to this work, and here is my page on the Thingiverse.

During 2013, a student and I completed a video -- Baseball Motion Charts, inspired by Hans Rosling.

From 2007-2014, I served as the Department Chair of the GVSU Mathematics Department for six years, and one year as the interim Chair of the Biomedical Sciences Department.

I also have a web page dedicated to Winning the Gas Game.

Here's the commercial that my MTH 210 class and I filmed back in 2001.

When I started my career, I published a series of diaries about my experiences on the job market and as a junior faculty member. Those old issues of MAA Focus are now available online, and the first installment is in the October 1992 issue.


I am the Research Information Volunteer for the Michigan Great Lakes West chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
