Research experiences for undergraduates
By carefully selecting projects, mentoring undergraduates can be rewarding for student and mentor. Read about the projects of my students at the REU link. Some of them are
Toy Model for Density of Bound States
Misconceptions in Vector Calculus
Structure vs. Spectra for Quantum Graphs
Modes and Resonance in Anisotropic Media
Lattice Model for Metamaterials
Math Consultation Clinic
In the MCC, graduate students manage teams of undergraduate students in problems from other disciplines and research entities and companies on and off the LSU campus.
Opportunities for undergraduate students
This link lists opportunities for undergraduate mathematics majors to become involved in research. We encourage our majors to begin early. Students may contact me about this. Take a look at some of the current PROJECTS in mathematics that involve undergraduates.
My mathematics studies transpired at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
Under the direction of Prof.
Nicholas Ercolani an increasing number of years ago, I completed my Ph.D. on the topic "A continuum limit of a finite discrete nonlinear Schrödinger system."
This is my trajectory anti-chronologically:

Visitor, Institute for Mathematics and its Applications, Minneapolis, MN (Fall 2016)
Associate Professor, Louisiana State University (2008-2014)
Visiting Researcher, Universidad Carlos III, Madrid (Fall 2010)
Research Scientist, Courant Institute, NYU (2006-'07)
Visiting Professor, Institut Élie Cartan, Nancy, France (summer, 2006)
Assistant Professor, Louisiana State University (2002-'08)
Visiting Assistant Professor, Duke University (2001-'02)
Assistant Research Professor, Duke University (-2001)
Ph.D, University of Arizona,
