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.

MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION COURSE
I have been training to teach meditation and mindfulness to Howard students through the Koru Mindfulness Training Center.
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.
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.
The next class will start in late January, with classes on four tuesdays.
Email me if you are interested.
My full meditation website including schedule of meetings and other resources.

For example, I also facilitate a meditation gathering (primarily for Howard, but open for all), online, on mondays at 6pm.
Email me for invitation.
