I'm an associate professor and chair of the SIUE mathematics and statistics department. During Spring 2014, I am teaching IS 301 (Math and Politics) and Math 498 (Senior Seminar). If you are taking one of my courses, you might find the teaching page helpful.

A LaTeX documentclass for writing SIUE masters theses is available here.I study minimal surfaces; these are surfaces that mathematically model soap films. I am particularly interested in triply periodic minimal surfaces. These surfaces separate space into two congruent regions, and they may have applications in biology, chemistry, and materials science. The picture in the corner of this page is a piece of the *gyroid* minimal surface, a particularly intriguing triply periodic surface that I studied as a part of my dissertation. The research page has more information about these surface (including links to lots of pictures!) and a list of my papers.

If you are interested in learning more about me, you are welcome to view my vita. My family page has lots of pictures of my two sons.
