I am a professor of mathematics at California University of Pennsylvania. I currently teach Special Topics in Computer Science, Abstract Algebra II, Differential Equations, Calculus III, and Calculus I (Overload). My teaching experience also includes Applied Calculus, Discrete Structures (Computer Science), Calculus II, Abstract Algebra I, 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.
I organized an international conference of Algebra, Number Theory, Combinatorics and Applications in South America, Colombia. This meeting takes place every two years. Our next meeting will be in December 2012.
