Professional Biography

I received a PhD in mathematics from the University of Rhode Island in May, 2004 and began teaching at Salem State College in the mathematics department in the Fall of 2004.  I had taught high school prior to attending gratuate school full-time, but I think I am better suited to teach at the collegiate level.

Professional Interests

My field of study is Block Design and I am interested in Graph Theory.  I am also interested in training the future teachers of secondary and middle school mathematics.


In addition to my teaching load, I am the chairperson of CLAS (Committee on Licensure in the Arts and Sciences) at Salem State. If you have any interest in teaching high school math, please feel free to contact me. I also serve on the mathematics department curriculum committee and the Education Unit assessment committee.

Personal Interests

I am captain of the Providence Grays, a vintage base ball club that plays by the rules of 1884 National League Base Ball.  We are dedicated to the preservation of and playing by the correct interpretation of the great American game.  If interested, please visit
