After graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with Ph.D. in
Mathematics, I was a visiting assistant professor at University of Kentucky
for one year. Then, I came to West Virginia University. Since then, I’ve
remained at WVU and make occasional visits to universities such as Brown
University, University of Minnesota, and Kyushu University.
