Stop Me If You’ve Heard This Theorem Before
Mathematics is the basis of comedy. In this talk we will back up this seemingly preposterous claim. The only prerequisite is a sense of humor. There will be one performance only.

Technology and the Abstract Mathematician
While my research program is disjoint from the computational side of mathematics, that does not mean my work as both a scholar and instructor isn't benefited from clever use of technology. In this talk I'll demonstrate several of my favorite tools that make my work more efficient, buying me more time for doing math. Note that each tool I'll demonstrate has a free version hosted "in the cloud", that is, all that's required is an updated web browser and internet connection to use.
