I have worn many hats over the course of my career, including teaching at university and 20 years as a system engineer and technical manager at AT&T Bell Labs. And I now have the good fortune of joining the Mathematics and Computer Sciences Department at Seton Hall on a term appointment where I hope to use my experience to help prepare our students to have successful and fulfilling careers.
My higher education includes mathematics and computer science. In mathematics, I specialized in Commutative Algebra. In computer science, I specialized in Computer Graphics and Scene Analysis. I applied these skills in both private and public sectors, implementing computer algorithms for a parallel processing supercomputer, developing telecommunications standards, measuring the performance of telecom networks, designing networks of workstations for hospital radiology departments, testing wireless communications, managing the website and production of financial statements for a major corporation, and managing the computer network of a public school district. Along the way, I taught mathematics at several colleges and spent a year as visiting professor at Howard University, where I taught computer programming, developed a course in computer graphics, and had the opportunity to meet students from around the world.
