General Information

From Drummondville, Québec, to San José, California, to Urbana, Illinois, to Rochester, New York, to Boston, Massachusetts, to Chattanooga, Tennessee. I suppose this makes me someone with great wanderlust and a keen interest in exploration. (J’ai une imagination débordante, tu le sais bien.) I received the Ph.D. in Mathematics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 under the direction of Prof. Alexandru Zaharescu and worked as a postdoctoral faculty at University of Rochester from 2007 to 2010, under the guidance of Prof. Steven M. Gonek. (This photograph was taken in 2002 when I was a graduate student. Memories!) During this time, I also studied questions about prime numbers with Prof. Daniel A. Goldston at San José State University and served on the faculties of Boston College and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where I am currently Associate Professor of Mathematics.

Area of Research

My primary area of research is in number theory. My favorite topics are L-functions, prime numbers, and Farey fractions. I am also hard at work in probability theory and, most recently, statistical analysis of random arrays.

 

Grants

I am very grateful for receiving grant support from the Mathematical Association of America’s Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants Program and the Dolciani Halloran Foundation for my work on the project Chattanooga Math Circle with Dr. Roger Nichols and Dr. Cuilan (Lani) Gao.

 

Teaching Duty

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

  • MATH 4300/5300 (Mathematics of Interest)

In the coming fall I will be teaching

  • MATH 1830 (Calculus for Management, Life, and Social Sciences)

  • MATH 4270/5270 (Elementary Number Theory)

  • MATH 4995 (Departmental Thesis)
