My research draws on two traditions in mathematics education and the learning sciences: Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) and cultural-historical perspectives on learning. RME starts with the premise that mathematics is, first and foremost, an activity, the human activity of structuring the world. Cultural-historical perspectives on learning are also concerned with human activity. From a cultural-historical perspective, the primary features of human activity are (a) that it is productive, and (b) that it is intertwined with the products of prior activity. Thus my research examines the following big question:
“what gets produced as people engage in mathematical activity?”
In short, my answer is, activity, artifacts, community, and identity are all “productively intertwined,” with each producing and being produced by, the others:
I view all aspects of this mutual production to be at play in all mathematical activity. However, I find it productive to focus different strands of my research on particular aspects, as described in the "Projects" section, below.

If these times don't work for you, please contact me to make an appointment (or knock if I am in my office.)
My main interest are Matrix Analysis and Numerical Linear Algebra and its applications. These fields are a fundamental part of Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, and Computational Mathematics. More specifically my interests include (i) polynomial eigenvalue problems, matrix polynomials, and their linearizations; (ii) conditioning and backward error analyses; (iii) nonlinear eigenvalue problems.
Nikolaus Vonessen Professor and Associate Chair - Undergraduate ProgramOffice: Math 207
Zoom (or Phone) Office Hours (by appointment only):
Please email me for an appointment. Let me know in your email a couple of times that would work for you (and whether you want a Zoom appointment or a phone call from me).
I'll be happy to meet with you - we just have to set up a time that works for both of us!
Algebra, in particular non-commutative ring and invariant theory.
