I am an instructor in the Mathematics and Statistics Department at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I have a M.S. degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics from the University of Minnesota Duluth and B.S. degrees in Geology and Geophysics from the Unversity of Minnesota. I also have a secondary teaching license in mathematics.
My professional interests are math remediation for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) majors from underrepresented groups, applications of logistic multiple regression to spatial data, and Native American STEM education.
In the summers and selected weekends I teach at the Gidakiimanaaniwigamig and Manoomin camps. Manoomin is a NSF-funded program to encourage Native American high school and college students to study how rice lakes have changed on the Fond du Lac Reservation.
