During the Spring 2023 semester, I am teaching

I'll also be working with some students on independent study and thesis courses. A description of the courses above is available by searching by course number in the URI Undergraduate & Graduate Catalog. The syllabus for each class can be found by clicking on the course title above. All course announcements, documents, and resources available during the semester will be available on URI's course management system Brightspace.

In keeping with URI's current pandemic-related policies, my undergraduate classes will be taught in person at the times listed in e-Campus. Masking of faces (nose and mouth) is requested and will be greatly appreciated, though it will not be strictly required at this time. (This is subject to change.) Thank you for your patience and constructive input during these circumstances while I try to deliver a slate of quality courses this fall.

Regular help sessions/office hours will be held on a drop-in basis (no appointment necessary) on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:00-3:50 pm in my office at 101C Lippitt Hall. Visits may also be scheduled by appointment--please send me an email to set up a time, whenever you'd like to chat; being available to my students is a priority for me.

Current masters and doctoral students

I am currently advising the following students (dates indicate when they began their current MS/PhD program at URI):

To all graduate students and potential graduate students, there is a wealth of very useful and practical advice online. In particular, there are many things I cannot say any better than Professor Ravi Vakil of Stanford University--please check out his pages "For potential Ph.D. students" and "The 'Three Things' Exercise for getting things out of talks".
