I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Palomar College.  Palomar College is located in San Marcos, California.  I love teaching and I am very excited to be a part of Palomar.  I am currently serving as the Assistant Math Center Director as well.

I am a native San Diegan.  I attended Grossmont College, and then transferred to Revelle College, UCSD and graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics.  I then went to graduate school at the Center for Applied Mathematics at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.  There I  received my Masters of Science in Applied Mathematics

My research interests include scientific computing, fault tolerant systems, numerical analysis and  improving the quality of mathematics education.
