My Biography

I have always been interested in helping others understand and use technologies.

In high school I was already helping other students with their math assignments. Since then, I have been helping others with mathematical, chemical, information, instructional, and photographic technologies. I sought a doctorate so that I could understand how mathematics was used in support of scientific explanations and so that I could teach about it at the university level.

As an applied mathematician and a scientist, I have used many numeric and text processing tools to create, to analyze, and to present information. As a new faculty member in 1981, I was helping chemistry students understand how to use personal computers to acquire and analyze data.

In 1996 when Adobe Photoshop was first being used to manipulate digitized photographs, I picked up photography to talk with and to support faculty, staff, and students who were starting to use these digital technologies.

Throughout my career I have been analyzing and supporting information and communication technologies that members of university faculty might and could use in their teaching.
