Interests

Broadly speaking, I am interested in topology and geometry. Specifically, I'd like to know more about the interactions between contact/symplectic geometry and topology.

Here's some relevant expository writing:

Teaching

Listed below is my teaching and TA experience.

  • Winter 2018: MATH 120A (Differential Geometry)
  • Fall 2017: MATH 32A (Calculus of Several Variables)
  • Summer 2017: MATH 95 (Transition to Upper Division Mathematics)
  • Spring 2017: MATH 123 (Foundations of Geometry)
  • Winter 2017: MATH 32B (Calculus of Several Variables)
  • Fall 2016: MATH 32A (Calculus of Several Variables) and MATH 33A (Linear Algebra and Applications)
  • Spring 2016: MATH 32B (Calculus of Several Variables)
  • Winter 2016: MATH 31A (Differential and Integral Calculus)
  • Fall 2015: MATH 31A (Differential and Integral Calculus)

Pepperdine University

Teaching at Pepperdine is as adjunct faculty.
  • Summer 2017: MATH 141 (Probability, Linear Systems, and Multivariable Optimization)
  • Summer 2016: MATH 141 (Probability, Linear Systems, and Multivariable Optimization)

UT Tyler

At UT Tyler I was the instructor for the following courses:
  • Spring 2015: MATH 1324, Mathematics for Business and Economics I
  • Fall 2014: MATH 1324, Mathematics for Business and Economics I
  • Spring 2014: MATH 2113, Calculus I Lab
  • Fall 2013: MATH 2113, Calculus I Lab

Tutoring

I'm available to tutor most college/university mathematics courses, though I don't tutor current students. During the week I can only meet at UCLA, but on weekends location can be more flexible (including much of the San Fernando Valley). You can peruse my teaching experience above and contact me by email to discuss availability.

About

I'm a third-year graduate student in the mathematics department at UCLA. Before UCLA I studied at the University of Texas at Tyler.

I live in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles with my wife Kristin.
