I am not teaching during the Fall 2017 semester.



I am a Associate Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Wright State University. I retired effective Dec 31, 2016. But I will will continue to use my current office through December 2017.

I came to Wright State in 1980 immediately after receiving my Ph.D. in Mathematics from University of Washington. My thesis was in Mathematical Physics on the subject of "Quantum Stochastic Processes", supervised by John Westwater. Soon after I changed my field of research to Operator Algebras.

This was one of the first web pages at WSU. It was first created sometime between March 1 and May 1, 1995 on a Next Color Workstation. It is still pretty much the same as it was then.

This page was last changed on September 6, 2017. It still needs work!
