LEO stands for the Lecturers Employee Organization, a union representing non-tenure track faculty at the three branches of the University of Michigan. LEO also supports campus communities through activities such as delivering bottled water to residents of Flint and funding scholarships for dependents of union members.

WeBWorK is a free online homework system first developed at the University of Rochester and maintained by the Mathematical Association of America.

I am a LEO III Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Michigan–Dearborn. I serve the Department of Mathematics and Statistics as the chair for the calculus sequence and as the local support for WeBWorK.

I am currently focused on improving student outcomes in Precalculus. The complex mix of factors that affect student progress through foundational mathematics can be difficult to untangle. By collaborating with other members of the department, I aim to describe the preparation of students before they enroll in departmental offerings, their pathways through introductory courses, the effect of different instructional techniques on student success rates, and the impact of success in those courses on graduation outcomes. In addition, it is necessary to recognize the significance of students’ off-campus environments and other factors that are difficult to measure. This work is supported in part by a grant from the John N. Gardner Institute.

This winter I am teaching Precalculus, Calculus II, and Introduction to Differential Equations.
