Biographical Information

I received both my Bachelor's (1982) and Master's (1988) Degrees in Mathematics from UNC-Chapel Hill before becoming a faculty member in 1989. I have also served as the mathematics departmentŐs Director of Teacher Training, as well as an academic adviser in the College of Arts and Sciences. I help supervise TAs who teach pre-calculus and calculus courses. I am especially committed to helping students discover more confidence in their own mathematical abilities and am a recipient of both a Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching and a StudentsŐ Undergraduate Teaching Award. I enjoy writing, photography, filmmaking, and UNC basketball.
