Professor of Mathematics, University of South Alabama
to my home page.
My areas of research are symbolic
dynamical systems and knot theory. In recent years I have mainly been investigating applications of the former to the latter. You can read about symbolic dynamics in this Scholarpedia article.
My teaching page has useful information for students in my classes, and miscellaneous recreational and educational links.
Mathematical Origami is one of my hobbies.
