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.


I am the acting chairperson for the Mathematics department.
