I am an assistant professor at the department of Applied Mathematics, the chair of Mathematics of Systems Theory (MAST). I teach mathematics courses such as calculus, linear algebra, probability, and statistics. My background is in mathematics (undergraduate level) and mathematics education (graduate level). My main research interests are in mathematics education and statistics education.
