Summary of MSRI CIME Conference on Developmental Math


I earned my Ph.D. Algebraic Geometry at The University of Pennsylvania in 1994 and have been a professor of Mathematics at CSUN since 2001. From Fall 2009 to Summer 2018, I was Director of Developmental Math where I oversaw courses for 2500-3000 freshmen. I am active in redesigning high failure rate, multi-section math courses at CSUN and across the CSU. I received the CSUN outstanding teaching award in 2008 and the College of Science and Math outstanding service award in 2015.


Outside of CSUN, I am the chair of the American Mathematical Society's Committee on Education and I sit on the Education Advisory Board of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute on UC Berkeley's campus.
