I am an Associate Professor of
University of Massachusetts
Boston. After receiving my Ph.D. in Mathematics from
MIT in 2000,
I was a J.W. Gibbs Instructor at
(2000-2003) and an Assistant Professor of
Penn State Altoona (2003-2006).
My research interests lie in combinatorics and differential geometry, with
a special emphasis on symplectic geometry and Hamiltonian group actions.
I am especially interested in combinatorial aspects of
equivariant cohomology and K-theory.
Over the last years I taught a variety of courses,
including Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations,
Mathematics for Economists, Probability, Vector Calculus, and Differential Geometry.
I have also
supervised Independent Studies in Geometry, Topology, Probability,
Mathematical Finance (in preparation for the
Actuarial Examinations). I am interested in innovative approaches to
teaching, inquiry-based learning, and the use
technology in improving the effectiveness of teaching.
In Spring 2013 I am on a sabbatical leave, visiting the Mathematics Department at MIT.
