I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in mathematical statistics that help prepare students for the P/1 actuarial exam. These courses also carry VEE (Validation by Educational Experience) credit from the Society of Actuaries. For more information, go to the VEE CREDIT link of the Department of Mathematics website.
My other duty is advising students in our pre-engineering program. In this capacity, I teach courses in both mathematics and physics; I hold a joint appointment to both departments.
My area of specialization is harmonic analysis, with particular emphasis on mathematical tomography. Several methods of medical imaging are based on tomography, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed x-ray tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET). I was quite active in research, spending time at the Institute for Advanced Study as a visiting member in 1983 and 1989.
