  • Ph D in Mathematics, Baylor University
  • BS in Mathematics, Elon University


My teaching interests range from introductory level mathematics courses such at Precalculus, Business Calculus, and Calculus up through many 300 and 400 level courses for majors. I particularly enjoy teaching courses in the Calculus sequence, differential equations and mathematical modeling.


Exceptional orthogonal polynomial systems, special functions, functional analysis, spectral theory
