I have worked at New Mexico State University since 1995, first as a faculty member in Mathematical Sciences, then head of Mathematical Sciences. I have been an Associate Dean in the College of Arts and Sciences at NMSU since Summer 2018. Previously I held temporary positions at The University of Texas at Austin (1991-1994 and 2002-2003), working primarily with and John Gilbert, Texas A&M (1994-1995) and Washington University in St. Louis (2009-2010). I obtained my Ph.D in Mathematics from the University of Maryland under the supervision of John Benedetto. My research is broadly in applied harmonic analysis, most recently focusing on aspects of spectral graph theory.
