In Winter 2019 I will be teaching Sections 001 and 004 of Math 217: Linear Algebra at the University of Michigan.
Undergraduate researchI am the current director of the Lab of Geometry at Michigan - LoG(M). Please direct any questions related to LoG(M) to logm-info [at] umich [dot] edu. LoG(M) is an undergraduate math research program. The lab runs 4 projects per semester with emphasis on computation and visualization as media for engaging undergraduates in modern mathematical research. Each project is led by 1-2 faculty supervisors with assistance from 1-2 graduate student mentors, and 3-4 undergraduate researchers.
- Fall 2018: I supervised the LoG(M) project, modeling convex projective geometries (webpage).
Grad mentors: Samantha Pinella and Robert Walker
Undergrad researchers: Rudreshwaran Ranganathan, Steven Schaefer, and Hanissa Shamsuddin
Student slides and final poster.
- Summer 2017: I mentored Jenny Natalia Jones-Baro at the Michigan REU program. Jenny collaborated with REU student Adam Holeman, who was mentored by my fellow postdoc Caleb Ashley.
Jenny and Adam's REU write-up: Random Walks on the Fundamental Group of the Once Punctured Torus.
