courses taught

• MATH 2001 - Introduction to Discrete Mathematics
Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
Introduces the ideas of rigor and proof through an examination of basic set theory, existential and universal quantifiers, elementary counting, discrete probability, and additional topics. Credit not granted for this course and MATH 2002.
• MATH 3170 - Combinatorics 1
Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
Covers basic methods and results in combinatorial theory. Includes enumeration methods, elementary properties of functions and relations, and graph theory. Emphasizes applications.
• MATH 4510 - Introduction to Probability Theory
Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Spring 2024
Studies axioms, combinatorial analysis, independence and conditional probability, discrete and absolutely continuous distributions, expectation and distribution of functions of random variables, laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, and simple Markov chains if time permits.
