I have been blessed by the opportunity to learn from great teachers. Therefore, I always aspire to bring to my own students the same wonderful experience. My pedagogy was recognized by Hunter College through the Cecile Insdorf Award for Excellence in Teaching, which I received in 2009 when I was teaching part time at the college. However, I am mostly humbled and rewarded by the recognition and appreciation that I receive from my students on a regular basis. Here are some examples.

While I primarily focus on my research, I am also constantly developing new pedagogy to teach about computer science and other related inter-disciplinary fields. I occasionally publish my methods, which lie in the intersection of scientific research and education (In the Fibonacci paper, Figure 8 shows 4 islands and not 5 islands, in the Tower of Hanoi paper, there is a calculation mistake in the speed section, 544x10^3 should be 1089x10^3 and 146 should be 136):

I am a member of the steering committee for the Quantitative Biology (QuBi) program at Hunter College. I am also a member of the CUNY Math Challenge committee. I am an Integrator at MoMATH where I help kids and parents explore mathematics. I am currently researching new ways to teach about counting, which is a at the heart of combinatorial analysis, and thus an essential part of a well rounded computer science education. Here's my reseach project on teaching to count.

I hope you will find in the courses below information that will benefit you. Feel free to contact me for any questions.
