Information on classes from previous terms is available here.
I created the course MATH 492: Industrial and Applied Mathematics Clinic, and have served as director of the Saluki Analytics Lab. In both of these structures SIUC undergraduate students, primarily in the mathematical and statistical sciences, provide technical consulting services for clients including Ameren, Naval Surface Warfare Center (Crane), The Women's Center, and a regional healthcare provider. If you are a student and want to participate in these experiences, or if your organization has a problem you'd like our students to work on, please let me know.
My research is in the area of mathematical logic. Some preprints are listed below. Other preprints may be found here.
I am glad to talk with students about the possibility of undergraduate or graduate research projects. I am open to thinking about a broad range of topics, but some ideas for graduate thesis work may be found here
