Thanks for visiting.
I joined the Department of Mathematics at BC in September, 1978,
teaching both mathematics and computer science courses ranging in level
from freshman through senior, and through second-year, graduate level
on the mathematics side. I worked outside academia for short
stretches (primarily summers) in the late 80s and early 90s the MITRE
Corporation in Bedford, MA, as a Lead Scientist.
In 2007, after almost 30 years and just then completing two terms as Chair of the Department, I "somewhat"
retired from Boston College, and my family
and I left New England and relocated to Southern Delaware. We live there today.
In 2008, I joined the faculty of Salisbury University in
Salisbury, MD, a Maryland University of National Distinction,
as a Visiting Professor in the Department of Mathematics
and Computer Science in the Henson School of Science and
Technology. This was truly an unexpected second career. I
retired from Salisbury in January of 2017.
My primary mathematical interests have always been in analysis
(specifically, operator theory and functional analysis) and the use of
technology in mathematics. Beginning in the mid 90s, I became
involved with several technology-related projects and publications with
several co-authors on publications involving
the use of Maple and Mathematica (John Wiley & Sons).
I have also worked on advanced texts titled
An Introduction to Analysis (Jones & Bartlett)
and An Introduction to Linear Programming and Game Theory (John Wiley & Sons).

I do only minimal maintenance on this website these days since retirement. But perhaps the following
(perhaps some outdated) pages
will be of use for you.
