I started my professional career as an electrical engineer at Bell Telephone Laboratories working on lasers, electro-optics and ferrite devices. Finding laboratory work not to my liking, I changed my life's focus and decided to become a mathematician. I received a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California at Irvine. Most of my working life has been in the fields of nuclear powerpoint simulation, data and telecommunications and teaching of mathematics.
I have been an adjunct professor at NOVA for about 8 years teaching subjects ranging from introductory mathematics, to pre-calculus and calculus.
