Most of my classes are administered on Canvas. If you are a current student, check there for class specific information including exam dates, office hours and assignment details.

I have an office at Deady 215M, on the mezzanine floor between the 2nd floor and top floor off the east stairwell. I also have an office at Chapman 206.

If you are a previous student needing a letter of recommendation, please contact me. In my letters I try to provide an accurate assessment of your abilities as observed in class, office hours or other interactions. I generally provide information about your grade(s) and rank in courses I taught as well as comparisons to the mean student at your level. Letters for students of large classes are usually less specific in nature, and you should consider whether a short impersonal letter is sufficient for your purposes.

I have supervised a number of PhD and honors students. Hopefully the list below is complete (let me know if I forgot you, or if I have the date wrong!). If you are a former student and would like me to link to your current web page or email address, please let me know.
