I am a Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Towson University.

My main area of mathematics research is model theory. Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic that aims to analyse classes of mathematical structures; the term “model” in this context means “mathematical object” (for example, a vector space, a field of real or complex numbers, a bipartite graph, etc.).

In addition to model theory problems (I mention some of them in the Research section of this website), I have directed a number of undergraduate research projects in a wide range of areas of pure and applied mathematics.

In my teaching, I try to take advantage of the recent developments in education technology. I have installed a WeBWorK server at Towson University, one of many throughout the country. If you are interested in having WeBWorK at your school (or to try it out), please feel free to contact me.
