About me

I have a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stony Brook University, and a B.S. and an M.S. in Physics from University of Connecticut. From 1992 through 1998, I was a scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where I participated in the design and construction phase of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). I have also conducted research in the area of Statistical Signal Processing, at Stony Brook University, with a focus on large biological networks, and developed fast algorithms for Reed-Solomon error correction codes at Motorola Solutions. I am an Adjunct Professor at Stony Brook University teaching courses which include Probability, Random Processes and Machine Learning. I am also involved in proposing new courses for an M.S. track in Machine Learning.

At School Nova, I teach Mathematics and commenced a Math Club for elementary school students, Grades 4 – 6. This is an intense, non-traditional program with topics in number theory, probability and geometry, creative problem solving through participation in MOEMS mathematics Olympiad, and illuminating stories of famous mathematicians and their discoveries. I have taught complex mathematical concepts to my two children at a very young age, and occasionally done enrichment lessons in their schools. I feel that teaching children the most advanced concepts that their minds can absorb, captivates their interest in Mathematics.
