My schedule

I am a professor in the  Mathematics Department  at Southern Connecticut State University.

I am the lead developer/maintainer of the Guava package for the GAP computer algebra system. GAP is designed as a computational aid for Group Theory and Algebra, it has many add-on packages, among them is Guava which performs computations related to error-correcting codes.

I am Co-Principal Investigator on the NSF-sponsored Pathways to Academic Excellence (PAcE) grant. The PAcE program provides nearly $600,000.00 for scholarships to SCSU for students majoring in STEM disciplines. See for more information.

I received my PhD degree in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
My areas of research are in the theory of error-correcting codes, and Combinatorics.
My advisor was Vera Pless.

Here are some items on which I've been working:
