I am currently the Associate Head for the Graduate Program and Director of Graduate Studies for the Mathematics Graduate Program at UA.
Here is my long CV.


My research is concerned with geometry and geometric flows. This includes work on Ricci flow, discrete versions of the heat equation, curve shortening flow, and discrete Riemannian manifolds. I am also interested in Delaunay triangulations and their generalizations. If you are interested, I have been working on an introduction to my work intended for the nonmathematician. It is still a work in progress and still in its early stages. (In fact, it is really just a summary of some geometry right now, and possibly outdated.) Please let me know if and when you find mistakes.

You may find links to my research papers at ArXiv and MathSciNet.

Go see Puzzles, Proofs, and Patterns: Experience the World of Mathematics, an exhPPP imageibit at the Flandrau Science Center in Tucson, AZ that I spearheaded through my NSF grant. 

I run the Geometric Evolutions On Computational Abstract Manifolds (GEOCAM) project GEOCAM

During summer 2010, I ran the Arizona Summer Program, a research program for undergraduates sponsored by UA's VIGRE grant.
