Academic Experience

University of Hartford, College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture

Assistant Professor of Mathematics, 1997 - Present

  • Taught undergraduate courses in engineering physics, algebra-based physics, optics, pre-calculus, calculus, and differential equations. Taught a graduate course in laser optical system design.
  • Developed a scheduling database program in MS Excel, hence cross-platform, to identify instructor and room schedules and conflicts, graph weekly schedules for any list of courses, and to identify curriculum-specific course offerings by major and semester. The program reads the data from Banner’s Class Search.
  • Developed an Excel program using parsed Registrar’s reports to check student grades in prerequisite courses as well as ensuring they are taking co-requisite courses.
  • Coauthored an Excel program to parse Registrar’s reports to generate suggested actions (Dean’s List, probation, warnings) for over 800 students so that piles of paper reports were no longer necessary.
