Professor of Mathematics, University of Florida

My current research interests are in the emerging area of computational topology. Recent projects include the analysis of human speech data, democracy data, and education data via persistent homology techniques. I have also done work in discrete Morse theory, developing algorithms to generate discrete Morse functions from point cloud data.

I also have interests in curriculum development and undergraduate education. I served as director of the University of Florida Honors Program for five years and am currently involved in mathematics education initiatives at the university.
