Research

My primary research interests are in combinational optimization with emphasis on dealing with intractability (NP-completeness), either by looking for polynomial special cases or developing heuristics that work well in practice. Current projects include

Software for download (or browsing)

Selected Publications.


GRADUATE STUDENTS: While I welcome an opportunity to work with you, I do not have any research assistantships available.

If you are interested in my research and would like to do an MS thesis or independent study project (starting with at least 3 credit hours of CSC 630), please make an appointment at your convenience. My projects require a strong background in design and analysis of data structures and algorithms, in software design, and a commitment to writing transparent and well-documented code in C, C++, Java, Python, etc.


Teaching

Some of my views on academic integrity. Actually this is an FAQ for a programming course, but many of my answers apply more generally and illustrate my philosophy of teaching computer science.

Useful tips for taking tests.

Other Information: Courses taught, curriculum ideas, etc.


Service


Other

I am a member and early service musician at Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

HTELC has an active campus ministry Wednesday evening suppers provide a "home away from home" -- all are welcome (you don't have to be Lutheran).

My enjoyable pasttimes include:

Reading non-technical books and articles (history, religion, politics, literature).

Travel.
A recent adventure: the seven bridges of Koenigsberg are now the five bridges of Kaliningrad.
More travel pictures

Biking and hiking.Berlin Sternfahrt: all major highways closed to all but bicycle traffic. on a dune in Neringa; the spit of land west of Lithuania

Camping. cooking on a camping stove under a tarp

Swimming in cold water (16 degrees C - do the math)with my brother emerging from the Balic Sea in Svetlogorsk, Russia

Composing, arranging, and adapting hymn tunes and other tunes. Here are some recordings of the Trinity Trio, a small ensemble that plays periodically during worship at Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church.
