Welcome! I have been working at the Math Department of Howard University, Washington D.C., since finishing grad school at Caltech in 1994. My research is in algebraic number theory and I love teaching. I enjoy life in the D.C. area with my beautiful wife Nicole though at times I do get nostalgic about California.

here
My first class was from July 13 to August 3, 2021.
The second class was on Sep 21, 28, Oct 5 and 12 of 2021.
Third class was Jan 25, Feb 1, Feb 8 and Feb 15 of 2022.
It is for beginners, and would help you to learn to manage stress, deal with difficult situations, develop calmness and concentration, and finally, compassion for yourself and others.
There are no exams or grades and only four classes but you have to attend all four.
