About me

I am an associate professor at the department of mathematics of the University of Texas at San Antonio.

My research interests include number theory, random matrices and (of late) ergodic theory with a sprinkling of model theory. I am particularly keen to explore the interplay between problems in these areas. I have current NSF support through 2018 under grant DMS-1500615 (PI: José Iovino).

I am a passionate teacher focused on quality education who likes to push curricular boundaries and try new pedagogical approaches. I set high expectations for all my students, particularly those pursuing careers in mathematics and science. I particularly enjoy working with students of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. I am an active member of SACNAS (the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science).

I also enjoy solving mathematics problems and puzzles for fun. I am the editor of Mathematics Magazine‘s Problems column.
