I work as Professor in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Alberta.  I am an applied mathematician, specializing in mathematical biology.  I am interested in understanding and explaining physiological processes through the development and analysis of mathematical models.  To learn more, I invite you to visit my webpage at the University of Alberta.

Quilt Artist

I am a self-taught quilt artist.  My quilts often are based on abstract geometric designs; they seldom are created for the purpose of conveying a particular mathematical concept, but instead reflect a structured approach to design, and are the brainchild of someone who has little choice but to think mathematically.

Many of the quilts shown here are original designs.  Please respect my copyright.

If you like what you see, I would love to hear from you!
