I am a professor of mathematics at California University of Pennsylvania. I currently teach Linear Algebra II, Abstract Algebra I, Calculus II, and Discrete Structures (Overload). My teaching experience also includes Abstract Algebra II, Calculus I and III, Applied Calculus, Discrete Structures (Computer Science), Special Topics in Computer Science, Complex Variables, Vector Geometry, College Algebra, and College Trigonometry. I got my Ph.D. in mathematics from the State University of New York at Binghamton. My main area of research is Combinatorial Topology, more specifically, I am working with Oriented Matroids. My research interested also includes a variety of topics such as: Commutative Algebra, Finite Group Theory, Graph Theory and Mathematical Education. More information about my research can be found under Research.
Undergraduate research is an integral part of my teaching activities as well. I am a founder and director of three undergraduate research groups that operate in California University of Pennsylvania, Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas and Antioquia University. These groups meet on a weekly basis. For more information about these groups click here.
I am also co-founder and organizer of the Carolina Mathematics Seminar (CMS). Our goal is to create a space for research and collaboration in mathematics in the Carolina area. We encourage student research through our seminar, and a couple of our students gave oriented research talks in 2011. For more information about the CMS click here.
