Welcome to my mathematics homepage!  I have been teaching mathematics and science for the last fifteen years, including a stint in the Peace Corps.  Of course, for six of those years I taught as a Mathematics graduate student at the University of Oregon in Eugene.  I received my B.A. in mathematics and english literature from Lewis & Clark College, and my M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Oregon. 

My current research interests are in noncommutative ring theory and algebraic geometry (see my current CV). (My former Ph.D. advisor and mentor is Brad Shelton.)  If you are interested you can read a bit about my research and obtain recent preprints of my publications on my research page.  I have interest in student research in my own fields as a well as combinatorial game theory, computational algebra, and applied mathematics in the sciences--in particular biology.

I am currently an Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Portland. This semester, I am teaching two sections of Vector Calculus (MTH 301) and one section of Modern (Abstract) Algebra (MTH 442).
