The one and only success which it is [ours] to command is to bring to [our] work a mighty heart.

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 the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 under the direction of Professor Alexandru Zaharescu and worked as a postdoctoral faculty at the University of Rochester from 2007 to 2010, under the guidance of Professor Steven M. Gonek. During this time, I also worked on prime numbers with Professor Daniel A. Goldston at San José State University and served on the faculties of Boston College and The 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 on probability theory, most especially random polynomials and mathematical finance.


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. In the fall term of 2016 I will be teaching

  • MATH 1960 (Calculus with Analytic Geometry II)

  • MATH 5560 (Real Analysis)
