Teaching Interests: I love math and have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to foster students' interest in an often intimidating subject. While the material can be interesting and powerful, math is about thinking and communicating effectively.

Research Interests: The noncommutative geometry program of Alain Connes. This refers to the application of algebra to questions arising from geometry, topology, and representation theory. Of particular interest are questions relating to groups and their representations. I'm also interested in the application of statistical techniques to problems arising from sports. I've supervised student research into methods of using regular season data to predict playoff success in the NFL.
