All other advising issues: please email me with your question or for an appointment.

Research: I research mathematical modeling scenarios using differential equations, in particular how to use these scenarios in teaching.  Most of my work is a mixture of mathematical calculations and programming work on a computer to get numerical results. Some recent publications:

Mastery-Based Testing to Promote Learning: Experiences with Discrete Mathematics. (PRIMUS)

Using the United States Census Data to Introduce Differential equations. (PRIMUS)

Ballistics Modeling with a Sponge Dart (SIMIODE)

United States Census Modeling (SIMIODE)

Potential mechanisms of coexistence between two globally important Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyta) species (Hydrobiologia)

Here's some information about some of my research geared toward undergraduates:

How to email your instructor. This should be obvious, but go ahead and get the refresher before sending the email.  You and I may both be grateful.

Success at math! You want success, and I want you to have success.  Here are some of the steps to get there.


Personal Information: I like to ride my bike in my spare time.  I also like reading, hiking, geocaching, and writing.  For more information on road bicycling in Ellensburg check out the Facebook page of The ReCycle Shop (local bike shop).  For more information on mountain biking in Ellensburg check out the Ellensburg Mountain Bike Alliance and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.  For more information on geocaching, check out
