Click for the big picture. I joined the LSUS mathematics department in 1989 as an Assistant Professor, was promoted to Associate Professor in 1994, then to Professor in 2001. I retired in 2015 and moved to the place the photo was taken — Kempten (im Allgäu), Germany. My Ph.D. is vintage 1985 from the University of South Florida , in Tampa, under the direction of Athanassios G. Kartsatos.

I worked mostly in old-timey measure theory while dabbling in various other topics, especially certain pizza problems (yum). For a while I played obsessively with computer graphics. My former advisor became completely addicted. Indeed, he can be seen to be tied up in knots.
