I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University. I do research in 3-dimensional geometry and topology, particularly involving ideal triangulations.

I am interested in mathematical and typographical art of various kinds and dimensions. I used to be active in the online 3-dimensional virtual world Second Life, mostly for the artistic possibilities. I also juggle and (very occasionally) play Go.

About the front page

It was discovered by A. J. W. Duijvestijn in 1978.

The CSS for the rollover effect was derived from an example by Tanked Up Underwater Imaging. They used an idea by Tanfa.
