Most of my work is concerned with topology of manifolds, and topics in algebra, algebraic topology, and controlled topology needed for this. A particular current interest is the Farrell-Jones conjecture in K-theory. See the arXiv for papers, or my Mathematics page for a partial selection.


For essays on mathematics education, computer testing, and related topics see my Education page.

I am the primary developer of materials for Math 1206c, the computer-tested form of the second semester of the first-year calculus for science and engineering.

I am the organizer of the EduTeX Working Group of the TeX Users Group. This is concerned with educational testing software.
