Research during my Graduate studies
I Worked with Dr. James Jamison (June 9, 1943  November 28, 2014) as an independent course on a)“A concise introduction to tensor product” by Carlos S. Kubrusly b)“Linear isometries of some normed spaces of analytic functions” by W.P. Novinger and D.M. Obe I am interested in Math Education,Operator Theory,MathematicalPhysics and Geometry . 
I am currently working on a NSF (National Science Foundation) Project with Dr. Dale Bowman, Dr. John Haddock, Dr. Leigh M. HarrellWilliams
