General

I am currently an associate professor at Bridgewater State University and am serving as the graduate chair in the math department.
Before coming to BSU, I was a postdoc at Cornell University, and before that I was at the University of Southern California where I received my PhD under the direction of Jason Fulman.

Additional information can be found in my C.V.


Teaching

For the Spring 2022 semester, I will be teaching Math 110 (Elementary Statistics), Math 401 (Introduction to Real Analysis I), and Math 412 (Mathematical Statistics).


Research

My research is primarily concerned with probability theory and its applications. I am particularly interested in Markov chains defined on algebraic and combinatorial structures and in distributional approximation using Stein's method techniques.

Probability Notes

Those interested in an introduction to probability are welcome to look at my old notes for Elementary Probability, Probability Theory I, and Probability Theory II.
