Professor; Chair, Mathematics
What I doI am a Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Denver.
functional analysis, math education
I was born in Guatemala and I got my Bachelors in math at Universidad del Valle de Guatemala. I came to the USA to pursue graduate studies. I got my masters and PhD in math at Texas A&M University. I had a post-doc at the Weizmann Institute of Sciences. I had a visiting position at Case Western Reserve University and then I spent several years at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I came to the University of Denver in 2001. My math research interests are non-commutative harmonic analysis, operator algebras, operator spaces, and Banach space theory.
- Ph.D., Mathematics, Texas A&M University
I have research interest in pure mathematics and in math education. In mathematics my recent work has been centered around non-commutative harmonic analysis, operator algebras, operator spaces, and Banach space theory. In math education I have been involved in several projects that use games and puzzles to teach important math concepts, designing adaptive algorithms, and using technology to design cost effective professional development for teachers.
