Professor of Mathematics
Department of Mathematics
Harvey Mudd College
Current teaching interests include linear algebra, abstract algebra,
discrete mathematics, and representation theory. This year
(2016-2017), I will be teaching Math 30B
(Calculus), Math 189G (Mathematics of Voting), Math 173 (Advanced Linear Algebra), and Math 174 (Representation Theory).
Current research interests include harmonic
analysis on finite groups and algebraic voting theory. I am particularly interested in finding, exploring,
and describing applications of the representation theory of finite
groups with the help of my talented and energetic undergraduate research students.
If you are an elementary, junior high, or high school teacher in the Los
Angeles area, you might be interested in our popular outreach program
called Pathways. Visit the Pathways homepage to learn more
about who we are, what we do, and why we do it. We would love to
visit your school!
If you are computer science, software engineering, or computational biology major, and you are thinking about studying abroad, check out the Aquincum Institute of Technology (AIT) in Budapest, Hungary. Together with Ran Libeskind-Hadas, I'm one of the AIT North American Co-directors.
If I have agreed to write recommendation letters for you, please
visit my recommendations page
at least two weeks before the first letter is due. Also, please
feel free to chat with me about ways you can make the letter
writing process go smoothly for both you and your letter writers.
