Chronicle: In case you found this page by Googling me after reading this Chronicle of Higher Ed story, you should be aware of what sets our ACM online calculus apart... namely that it preserves a liberal arts ethos via its personalization and high level of interactivity! While the Chronicle story presented our ACM course as, perhaps, a success story in contrast to some more controversial efforts, there is much more to know. See here for more info about the course, including a description of the synchronous, small group interactive tutorials that students attend each week.
Mmmm... Bacon: I am one of the few, proud (?) people having an Erdös-Bacon number. Will you be the one tech-savvy and proactive enough to figure out how to add me to this page? I will bake you cookies.
MacTalks: Here I am as part of a series Macalester is producing called MacTalks. In this brief ten minute talk, I discuss how the idea of community plays a role in my research and teaching.
Art collaboration: I played a very small roll in a very big and amazing art project on swarms done by the incomparable Karina Li.
New grant: I'm excited and grateful to be supported by National Science Foundation Grant DMS-1412674, Applied Dynamics and Topology of Aggregation Systems. From 2014 - 17, this grant will support nine undergraduate students who will conduct research on mathematical aspects of biological swarms.
