I am an applied mathematicians, whose scholarly work has focused on wavelets, ordinary differential equations, large data sets, 3D printing, and applications of mathematics. I have a website devoted to this work. For 3D printing, here is my page on the Thingiverse.

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

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.

A web site in memory of my father.
