I have taught Mathematics and Introductory Statistics at the University of Tennessee at Martin for over thirty-two years now. I usually teach four courses per semester. My print publications are listed on a separate page. In my "spare time" I am an active web content developer with tens of thousands of web pages on prime numbers theory and records, especially the database of the 5,000 largest known primes.
In 1984 I received my Ph.D. in algebraic number theory at the University of California at Berkeley, working under P. Emory Thomas. Before that I earned a B.S. in mathematics at the California State University at Hayward, 1979 (now rebranded as Cal State East Bay).
My current academic interests include prime number theory and the use of computers and the web to teach mathematics. I have enjoyed computers ever since I wire-wrapped my first four bit computer in the early 1970's.
The University of Tennessee at Martin is an excellent four-year undergraduate institution in the very rural northwest corner of Tennessee.
