Teaching Philosophy

Pacific has been a great place to work closely with students. I love the interaction made possible by small classes and independent studies.  It is satisfying to see many of our students go on to earn advanced degrees in mathematics or to assume other leading roles in society. 

Research Interests

Commutative algebra, topology, topological groups.  In recent years I have been working on extending some classical results on compact topological groups. These questions are part of a central theme in mathematics that has been on-going for nearly a century.
