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.

Family-wise, I have two children: Kate (a stand-up comic) and Greg (a farmer), 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.
