General Information

I received the Ph.D. in Mathematics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the guidance of Prof. A. Zaharescu and trained at University of Rochester as a postdoctoral faculty under the supervision of Prof. S.M. Gonek. During this time, I have worked, also, with Prof. D.A. Goldston at San José State University and served on the faculty of Boston College.

Area of Research

My special field of interest is number theory. I am also hard at work in probability theory and multivariate statistical analysis. My favorite topics are L-functions, prime numbers, Farey fractions, random polynomials, and random processes.



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. I am currently teaching

MATH 1830 - Calculus for Management, Life, and Social Sciences
MATH 4270/5270 - Elementary Number Theory

and serving as faculty advisor for the Math Club.



I gratefully acknowledge grant support from the Mathematical Association of America’s Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants Program and the Dolciani Halloran Foundation for my project Chattanooga Math Circle ($5,966, April 18, 2017 - May 31, 2018).
