Hi, I am a professor at the Minnesota State University, Mankato.  My research interests are concerned with matrix theory, graph theory and combinatorics (For the list of publications, see CV).  I am also interested in complex network analysis and machine learning/predictive analytics.  I am currently advising the Student Association for Mathematical Experiences in Research (SAMER), and coordinating the Mankato Area Math Circle for Students (MAMCS).

“You enter the first room of the mansion and it’s completely dark.  You stumble around bumping into the furniture but gradually you learn where each  piece of furniture is.  Finally, after six months or so, you find the light switch, you turn it on, and suddenly it’s all illuminated.  You can see exactly where you were.  Then you move into the next room and spend six months in the dark.  So each of these breakthroughs, while sometimes they’re momentary, sometimes over a period of a day or two, they are the culmination of, and couldn’t exist without, the many months of stumbling around the dark that precede them.”
