I am Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Colorado Spring (UCCS) and also the Director of the MathOnline Program at UCCS. I have been teaching at UCCS in traditional and online environments since 2003.
My research interests lie at the interface of two major fields: the well established mathematical field of nonlinear wave propagation and the younger field of cardiovascular mathematics. Lately, I have employed various theoretical tools, originally developed in the study of nonlinear waves, to gain insight into the complex dynamics exhibited by the cardiovascular system. I have also been using numerical simulations to validate the hypotheses and to develop new methods of analysis.
