About Me

I graduated from Dartmouth College and then taught math for four years at Coventry High School in Coventry Connecticut. After that, I studied at the University of Massachusetts where I received a Ph.D. in Mathematics.

My research interests include applied statistics and mathematics education. I enjoy applying statistical methodology to diverse disciplines and have collaborated on published papers and conference presentations with colleagues from several fields. I have also served in leadership roles on a series of National Science Foundation grants, devoted to supporting innovative approaches of teaching mathematics at the secondary and university levels, and assessing the impact of those approaches. Those interested in a more detailed listing of my professional activities can access my CV via the link below.

My greatest joy is teaching and I love my job. I am both honored and humbled by the recognition I have received over the years for my teaching efforts. Most recently, I received Arcadia's 2020 Provost's Award for Outstanding Advising and Mentoring, and in 2019 was the recipient of the Award for Teaching Excellence given by the Philadelphia chapter of the American Statistical Association.

Family-wise, I have two children: Kate (a stand-up comic) and Greg (a farmer), daughter-in-law Katie (a philosophy professor), and three grandchildren: Shane, Asa, and Tsipora. My wife Nancy and I enjoy birding, walking/hiking (often with dog Petey), sustainable gardening and traveling. Our most recent trips have been to Scotland, Costa Rica, Iceland, Australia, and New Zealand. I also enjoy playing tennis.
