Professional Biography

I am a mathematician with a PhD from the University of Victoria in British Columbia. Before coming to DU, I worked at Montana State University coordinating their multivariable calculus curriculum. My primary fields of interest are ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism. Much of my research deals with the observation of incomplete information sources.

As a teaching professor, I am interested in pedagogical and educational research related to mathematics. In particular I am currently working on curriculum development related to Math 1200, a calculus course for business and social science majors.

I also conduct mathematical research in the fields of dynamical systems and ergodic theory. My current work investigates various thermodynamic measures related to discrete observations through a lossy recoding of data. In particular, I seek deeper connections between synchronization in dynamical systems and thermodynamics.
