RESEARCH

My interests lie in theoretical computer science and abstract algebra, in particular semigroups. I especially enjoy studying the interplay between Mathematics and Computer Science. Some selected papers are: Back to Top
TEACHING

I have taught most of the undergraduate curriculum in Computer Science, and a good part of the undergraduate Mathematics curriculum before coming to Loyola. I have also lately become involved in the reform movement in teaching Mathematics. Loyola University New Orleans, Southern University in New Orleans, Xavier University, and the University of New Orleans, make up the Greater New Orleans Collaborative. This summer the GNOC put on a workshop entitled Education and Technology at the University of New Orleans. Each university in the collaborative also has an individual campus grant.

FRENCH QUARTER

I have lived in New Orleans since 1977. I moved into the French Quarter in 1978, and I bought a condo there in 1995. The Quarter is a great place to live, with its Old World charm and Bohemian character. It is not conducive to study and hard work.
