General Information

From Drummondville, Québec to San José, California to Urbana, Illinois to Rochester, New York to Boston, Massachusetts and then to Chattanooga, Tennessee, I received the Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and have served on the faculties of the University of Rochester, Boston College and The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where I am currently Associate Professor of Mathematics. Before drifting into mathematics, I was a senior member of the technical staff at Trimble Navigation Limited.

 

Area of Research

My area of research is in number theory. My favorite topics are L-functions, prime numbers and Farey fractions. I also work in probability theory, most especially random polynomials. I am happy to talk with graduate students about projects in these areas leading to a Master’s thesis with good prospects for an article. Undergraduate students are encouraged to work on a departmental honors thesis and to obtain research experience during the summers by doing an internship at national laboratories or participating in a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, which will allow you the relevant research experience before you apply to Ph.D. programs. The Ph.D. program is all about research.

 

Teaching Duties

I am dedicated to the goal of promoting significant learning experiences among my students. I love learning, teaching mathematics on various levels and helping students. This summer I will be teaching

In the fall term of 2016 I will be teaching

  • MATH 1960 (Calculus with Analytic Geometry II)

  • MATH 5560 (Real Analysis)
