My research interests are in the fields of approximation theory, special functions, orthogonal polynomials, combinatorics, and computer aided geometric design. I have published 25 research papers in highly ranked and refereed mathematics journals, 2 papers in conference proceedings, and two book chapters since 1998. I have visited City University of Hong Kong 5 times during 2010-2013 as a senior research fellow. I have collaborated and I am collaborating with a number of researchers including 2 leading mathematicians-Professors Mourad Ismail-Univ. of Central Florida and Ron Goldman-Rice University. I have refereed for over 10 math journals. I have used my research to design topics for undergraduate student projects and studies.
I have twice been a finalist for the UHD Scholarship/Creativity Award-2005 and 2011, and once a recipient of the UHD Faculty Development Leave Award-Fall 2011-spent at City University of Hong Kong. I have received a number of UHD ORCA and FDL grants. My 5 visits at the City University of Hong Kong were funded by research grants from Hong Kong Research Council.
