about me

I grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana (the one-time magnet wire capital of the world), and I earned a BA in mathematics from St. Olaf College. My PhD is from Indiana University, Bloomington. After a post-doctoral stint at the University of Michigan, I came to Wyoming in 2005. Outside of mathematics, I enjoy skiing, ruminating on the New York Times crossword puzzle, drinking good coffee, and passionately following the (mis)fortunes of the Indiana University men's basketball team.
