Home Department and Title: School of Mathematical Sciences, Associate Professor
Interests (Teaching/Research): Mathematical modeling
Year started at RIT: August 2011
Favorite place(s) on campus: 4th floor of the library, outdoor/indoor tracks
Mentorship areas: Preparing for tenure, work – life balance indicate 2 or more areas that you would be willing to mentor faculty.

Proud Professional Moment: What is the most significant/proudest accomplishment in your career?

A consistent challenge is work-life balance. I have not overcome it, but I continue to adapt and learn from others.

I just completed a full-year of sabbatical and I learned an important lesson: life goes on at RIT without me. I don’t have to be involved in everything.
Future Aspirations: What you would like to accomplish in the next 10-15 years?
In the next 10-15 years, I would like to establish a productive research center focused on industrial applied mathematics and mathematical modeling.
