Currently I am the Graduate Program Coordinator. Contact me if you are interested in pursuing a Masters degree in Mathematics at CSUSM.


I have been teaching several graduate classes recently including: My research area is mathematical biology. In recent years, I've been working mostly on the theory and applications of reaction networks. Reaction network theory draws on mathematical tools from real analysis, dynamical systems, algebraic geometry, graph theory, and stochastic processes to understand the dynamics of biochemical reaction networks.
