I have been at Longwood since 1990.
I have a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University
of Virginia. My primary research interest is algebra, specifically
representation theory. My primary
teaching interest is in teaching the introductory theoretical courses,
such as Transitions (Math 300), Modern Algebra (Math 342) and Advanced Calculus (Math 462). I think
that it is possible for undergraduate students to appreciate the beauty
of abstract mathematics -- it's just takes a lot of work. But we give it a good
try.
