My research and upper-level teaching has focused on analysis and computer applications in mathematics, including fractals, chaos and topics in numerical analysis, especially the theory and implementation of automatic differentiation. My interests also include using technology to illuminate mathematical understanding.
I received the George Pólya Award for expository excellence in The College Mathematics Journal from the Mathematical Association of America. I originally designed Davidson's MAT 108 course, Exploring Mathematical Ideas, and MAT 437, Dynamical Systems, and I've collaborated in developing these and many courses including calculus.
Originally from St. Louis, my family and I have made North Carolina our home, right down to the white and blue Panther jerseys.
