Teaching

Notes about Capstone Projects for Undergraduate Students: I normally supervise about 3 or 4 undergraduate senior capstone projects or honors theses each semester on topics in data science, machine learning, partial differential equations, or applied probability. If you are interested in doing your capstone project or honors thesis with me, it is important to contact me well before the start of the semester, as I take students on a first come first serve basis. If you contact me after the start of the semester, it is unlikely I will be able to advise you.
