About Me

I enjoy learning and teaching mathematics and when not doing math I am likely helping out at my church or watching entirely too much soccer (i.e. real football). If you are one of my students you should know that I am invested in your success. Now go do your homework.


Course materials are on Moodle.
Office Hours for Fall 2019 are tentatively :
M - Tu - W- Fri :: 11:00-11:30am and
M - W 3-4pm
and of course I'm generally available by appointment!


My research is in the topology of algebraic varieties and geometric representation theory. Currently I study equivariant intersection cohomology of Borel orbit closures in the wonderful compactification of an adjoint algebraic group.
