I earned my PhD in mathematics from Louisiana State University. In my postdoctoral years at the University of Connecticut I continued to work in control theory on Lie groups and also worked on partial differential equations that model biological processes. In 2005, I joined the mathematics graduate faculty and received a fellowship from UConn Teachers for a New Era. Since then my research interests are in Mathematics Education. Specifically, college mathematics teaching and learning, mathematics teacher preparation (prospective and practicing teachers), and K-12 mathematics education. I served as Graduate Director for Instructional Services during the period 2013-2018.
