My scholarly areas of expertise and research are mainly in graph theory and discrete mathematics, operations research, management science, mathematical programming, and mathematics education and curriculum development. My teaching interests, however, are quite varied and encompass a wide range of topics in both pure and applied mathematics in addition to those mentioned above, from introductory-level subjects such as algebra, precalculus, calculus, or finite mathematics, to more upper-level topics such as combinatorics, number theory, operations research, computational mathematics, or combinatorial optimization. I also enjoy teaching mathematics concepts courses for future elementary and middle school teachers.
