Welcome to my website!  I graduated from Penn with a degree in the Philosophy of Science and Mathematics.  My current research is primarily in the area of ancient Greek mathematics.  I am also interested in the history and philosophy of mathematics in general.  

I worked in engineering after studying Physics in college.  After a number of years in industry I returned to school for graduate work.  There, I found that my true interests lie in the history and philosophy of science.  

I am very fond of teaching. I find it most rewarding to share my knowledge and experience with the next generation.
