As of September 2016, I have retired from teaching at Kent State University. I remain in residence and active in research.
My home department is the Department of Mathematical Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University. The Department offers degree programs at the bachelor, masters, and doctoral levels in mathematics and applied mathematics. I have been involved in the Applied Mathematics Program.
My training is in numerical analysis. My current interests are in the areas of computational applied mathematics, in general, with applications to problems in liquid crystals, in particular. My interest in liquid crystals stems from the fact that there exists at Kent a major research institute devoted to their study: the Liquid Crystal Institute (LCI).
I was a member of the program faculty of the Chemical Physics Interdisciplinary Program (CPIP) for 18 years (1996-2013). I also served for 4 years (2000-2004) as Treasurer of the International Liquid Crystal Society (ILCS), a professional organization with nearly 1,000 members, from more that 40 countries.
More information about administration, awards, grants, publications, and
students is available in my short vita.
