I received Bachelor of Science (1982) and Master of Science (1984) degrees in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin- Madison. From 1979-1982 I was a member of the UW Marching Band. I've been licensed as amateur radio's N9UR, since 1977. I then received the Ph.D. in Mathematics (1987) from the University of Wisconsin- Madison. My Ph.D. dissertation, which is in the area of Numerical Analysis, was directed by John Strikwerda. While a doctoral student I was employed by the Army Math Research Center. After graduating, I received a post-doctoral research appointment in Mathematics at Cornell University, where I studied under Lars Wahlbin. I joined the faculty in the Mathematical Sciences Department at University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee in 1989. After serving 29 years at UW-Milwaukee, moved to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette as Professor and Department Head (Mathematics). I am also Professor Emeritus at UW- Milwaukee.

I teach mathematics and conduct research in applied mathematics. My main research interests are in the areas of numerical analysis and computational methods for partial differential equations.
