Hi! Welcome to my web page. I finished my Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Rhode Island in 1997. My dissertation was on list coloring bipartite graphs, but now I mostly study the mathematics of origami (paper folding).

I'm currently an associate professor of applied mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.

My new book Origametry, Mathematical Methods in Paper Folding has come out! It is published by Cambridge University Press, and is slowly being sent to countries around the world. (I have a friend in Australia who got her copy before I got mine!) It can be ordered from the publisher. ALSO I've made an Errata page for the book, because of course there are errors!

     In the Fall 2024 semester I am teaching
         MAT 110 Calculus II,
             Section B MWF 12:15pm - 1:20pm
         MAT 112 Intro to Higher Mathematics,
             MWF 10:00am - 10:50pm

     In the Spring 2025 semester I am teaching
         MAT 229 Linear Algebra and Differential Equations,
            MWF 11:00am - 12:05pm
         MAT 372 Origami Math,
            MWF 1:30pm - 2:20pm

     Please Email me if you have any questions about, well, anything!    

There are a lot of things on this site. As it's grown they've gotten all inter-mingled and some of the links go in circles. Below is a list of the main things here, but feel free to explore!
