Research interests/expertise

Most of my research is in Combinatorial Design Theory and Graph Theory. Specifically, I am interested in Graph Searching, Graph Decompositions, Graph Algorithms, and Graph Labelling.


I have taught many different courses at MUN in Mathematics and Computer Programming. I often teach Linear Algebra, Introduction to Combinatorics, Combinatorial Analysis, and Mathematics for Business.
