Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your stay.

What's Happening in Fall 2016

I will be at the Centenial meeting of the Iowa Section of the MAA (10/7 - 10/8).

I will be spending a week in Japan (10/29 - 11/6); in particular, I am an invited speaker at a couple of conferences (details to be posted soon).

We are practicing for the Putnam Exam each Wednesday at 4PM in Carver 400. If you are interested in solving challenging math problems, you should stop on by!


I've been teaching clases at Iowa State University for 5 years now. Here is a list of my most recent syllabi to give you an idea of what to expect in my classes:

Take my class. We'll have fun.

My primary mathematical playground is analysis; in particular, I quite enjoy studying spaces of continuous functions. Here is list of my publications (my Erdős number is 4):

Presenting "Separation of Points, the Quotient Topology, and the Weak Topology" at BUGCAT 2011.
A necessary and sufficient condition for coincidence with the weak topology
Joint work with J. Clanin.To appear in Involve.

A multiplicative Banach-Stone theorem
 Contemp. Math., Vol. 645 (2015), pp. 191-197.

Characterizations of peripherally multiplicative mappings between real function algebras
 Publ. Math. Debrecen, Vol. 84 (2014), pp. 379-397.

On the generality of assuming that a family of continuous functions separates points
 Joint work with S. Lambert and A. Luttman. Mediterr. J. Math., Vol. 10 (2013), pp. 1917-1935.

Generalized weak peripheral multiplicativity in algebras of Lipschitz functions,
Joint work with A. Jimènez-Vargas, A. Luttman, and M. Villegas-Vallecillos. Cent. Eur. J. Math., Vol. 11 (2013), pp. 1197-1211.

Generalizations of weakly peripherally multiplicative maps between uniform algebras
 Joint work with A. Luttman. J. Math. Anal. Appl., Vol. 375 (2011), pp. 108-117.


Currently, I am a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics right here at Iowa State University. Here is some other information about myself:

Midwest is Best. 
I am originally from Long Island, NY; in particular, I am from West Islip (pronouced ice-lip, not is-lip).

I attended Clarkson University, where I earned my B.S. (with distinction) in 2008. I also my M.S. (2010) and Ph. D. (2012) at Clarkson, where my advisor was Dr. Aaron Luttman.

As of late, I have had no hobbies other than mathematics. Here is 100 pages of math that I wrote for fun:

 Measure Theory
