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 with 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 taking graduate students this year and am happy to talk with you about projects in these areas leading to Master’s theses with good prospects for journal articles. Undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to work on a departmental honors thesis and to obtain hands-on research experience during the summers by doing an internship at national laboratories or participating in a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Working on a thesis or doing a summer research program 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)
