Bio

I teach a variety of classes including all levels of calculus, differential equations, and statistics. At Boston University I spent time studying Newton's N-Body Problem under the advisement of Glen R. (Dick) Hall. The N-Body Problem is a model for the motion of bodies in space and has been a proving ground for the study of differential equations ever since Newton tried to describe the motion of the moon. When not working on mathematics you'll find me running and knitting around the city.
