Professor of Mathematics & Statistics
Swarthmore College

I have long been interested in many aspects of teaching and learning in mathematics, including discovery-based learning, peer support, and writing in mathematics courses. Though trained in graph theory and combinatorics, my scholarly efforts are now focussed more on pedagogical writing. I taught at Williams College for 14 years before coming to Swarthmore in 2000.
