I have been teaching math and statistics at De Anza College since 2001 and taught at Foothill College for several years before that. Although I teach statistics, calculus, and finite math most often, I enjoy teaching a wide variety of math courses at De Anza. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to introduce students to many applications of mathematics in the real world; mathematics is everywhere and affects our lives in many ways.
I have also worked in the finance industry as an actuary. An actuary analyzes financial risk based on past insurance or pension claims experience, prices insurance policies or pension plans, and analyzes profitability, and can do this in various areas of insurance (life, health, property) and pensions, using mathematics, probability and statistics as well as insurance (or pension) accounting and law.
