Teaching Interests

I am interested in teaching any undergraduate level courses. Courses that I have not taught at Texas State but interested in teaching are Linear Algebra, Calculus III, Analysis I, Analysis II, Modern Algebra.

Research Interests

I am interested in complex analysis (in one variable), especially in complex valued analytic
function spaces and their applications in operator theory and potential theory. I am currently
working on an extremal problem on the Bergman spaces and a problem on the growth of
hyperbolic polygons in the unit disk. I have also developed interest in discrete conformal
geometry (circle packing).
