I joined the faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science at Salisbury in August, 2008. For 30 years prior to that, I
was a member of the faculty at Boston College in the Department of
Mathematics, serving two terms as its Chair (2001 to 2007) prior to my
Before coming to Salisbury, I had previously taught both
mathematics and computer
science courses ranging in level from freshman through senior, and
through second-year, graduate level on the mathematics side. My time at Salisbury has been focused on freshman
and sophomore courses, almost exclusively on the mathematics side,
although that range is constantly expanding due to increasing
enrollment trends at Salisbury in both mathematics and computer science.
My primary mathematical interests lie in analysis (specifically, operator theory and
functional analysis) and the use of technology in mathematics.
Beginning in the mid 1990s, I became involved with several technology-related projects
and publications with several co-authors on
publications involving the
use of Maple and Mathematica
(John Wiley & Sons).
I have also worked on advanced texts titled An Introduction to Analysis (Jones
& Bartlett) and An Introduction
to Linear Programming and Game Theory (John Wiley & Sons).
You can find out more about these efforts on
my publications page.
I've also worked outside academia, including several (albeit dated) consulting stretches with the MITRE Corporation in Bedford, MA, as a Lead Scientist. A (reasonably) current CV contains more detail on all of this.
Surprisingly, for me, I am now retired after eight and a half years here in Salisbury. This was truly an unexpected second career, after having served for 30 years at Boston College and having tried retirement once already. Apparently I was not very good at retirement the first time, but I hold very high hopes of achieving success this second time around.
Please let me thank the University, the faculty and staff of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, and the students of Salisbury for allowing me the opportunity to have rediscovered what I truly enjoyed about the classroom and mathematics. I have gained not only colleagues and students, but many friends along the way over these last seventeen semesters.
