About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Kent State University at Stark. I earned my PhD in 1997 from Kent State University in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Mathematics Education.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Pure Mathematics and one in Statistics and a Master of Science degree in Pure Mathematics.  My research interests include mathematical beliefs and problem solving, the preparation of future mathematics educators, and curriculum design and testing for mathematics classes.
