Teaching

- Fall 2003 I am teaching Discrete Math (Math 301) and Applied Modern Algebra (Math 302). You can find course information, participate in discussions groups, and monitor your grades on the Blackboard system.
- If you're interested in seeing material from my previous teaching as examples look here.

Research

- My current research is in structural graph theory. My doctoral dissertation, completed under the direction of Dr. Xingxing Yu, addresses disjoint subgraphs and linkages in planar graphs, with an application to general graph minors. Here's a pdf copy of my thesis. Due to the size of that file, you may prefer to look at just the introductory sections, also in pdf.
- Curriculum Vitae

Publications

- Long Cycles in 3-Connected Graphs in Orientable Surfaces, with X. Yu,
Journal of Graph Theory 41: 69-84, 2002

preprint here in pdf or postscript format - The Circumference of Graphs with no K(3,t) Minor, with G. Chen, X. Yu and W. Zang, in preparation
