After completing a BMath (2002) and MMath (2004) in Applied Mathematics here at UW, I had the privilege of teaching several courses here while exploring aviation on the side (CPL single-engine licence and PPL ground school instructor), then the good fortune to land a faculty position as a Lecturer in 2005 then Continuing Lecturer around 2014.

I teach mostly second-year Calculus and Differential Equations courses, and still very much enjoy lecturing and interacting with students, helping those who are struggling and often learning new things from some very bright minds.  Service duties have included advising, transfer credit assessment, serving on various committees, and helping to create high school contests, most recently the Sir Isaac Newton Physics Contest and the Canadian Senior Mathematics Contest.
