About Me


I have been with Westminster since 1989.  My teaching usually includes courses in Statistics, Discrete Mathematics, and Operations Research.  I am active in the Mathematics Association of America currently serving on a committee which oversees the special interest groups in Mathematics.  I also serve as an associate editor for CAUSE, the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education and work on the resources for that web page.  

In the last several years, I have worked with students on various mathematical projects including particle flow through a constrained pipe, determining the critical variables that affect a basketball free throw, mathematical models for the evolution of the ABO blood types, applied game theory to the peer review process of class projects, and a statistical study of the heights of soldiers in the Civil War as a proxy to determine their nutrition status.  Most of these students' work has been presented at national conferences.  The students have gone on to various fields.  Some went to graduate school in Biostatistics, Operations Management, and Physics.  Some are high school mathematics teachers.  Others went to work for consulting companies after graduation.
