I have taught Mathematics and Introductory Statistics at the University of Tennessee at Martin for over twenty-five 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 several thousand 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.
My current academic interests include prime number theory and the use of computers (especially the world wide web) to teach mathematics. I have enjoyed computers ever since I wire-wrapped my first four bit computer in the early 1970's; now I use them in both research and teaching.
The University of Tennessee at Martin is an excellent four-year undergraduate institution in the very rural northwest corner of Tennessee.
