Professor of Mathematics

Hodson Science and Technology Center, Room 312


I joined the faculty at Hood in 2007, after spending a year as an NSF VIGRE postdoctoral fellow at the University of Maryland. I earned my Ph.D. in 2006, where my doctoral dissertation was on the existence of solutions to the wave equation on a waveguide.

Currently, I am a co-principal investigator on Hood College’s Noyce STEM Teacher Education Partnership (NSTEP), funded by NSF-DUE 1660640. NSTEP provides scholarships for students majoring in biology, chemistry, or mathematics who plan to be secondary education teachers after graduation. For more information on NSTEP, see our financial aid page.  I was also a senior investigator on a multi-year research project on classroom voting, Project MathVote: Teaching Mathematics with Classroom Voting, funded with NSF-DUE grant 0836775 from 2010-2013. I am a Project NExT Fellow (2007 Sun Dot) and a member of the Mathematical Association of America.

In addition, I have served as a member of the MAA’s Committee on Minicourses and as the director of Section NExT for the MD-DC-VA section of the MAA.
