I am Associate Dean, Students and Programs in the Yeates School of Graduate Studies, and a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Ryerson University. My research interest is in graph theory, with applications to real-world complex networks, such as the web graph, on-line social networks, and graph searching games such as Cops and Robbers. I am an adjunct professor at Dalhousie University, and I am the founding member of the research group Graphs at Ryerson (G@R). My research is supported by grants from NSERC and Ryerson, with past grants from Mprime and MITACS. I won Ryerson Faculty SRC Awards in 2011 and 2009 for excellence in research, and an inaugural YSGS Outstanding Contribution to Graduate Education Award in 2012. I am co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Internet Mathematics, and I am on the Editorial Board of Contributions to Discrete Mathematics. I served on the Board of Directors of Mprime and MITACS NCE.
I am looking for two new Masters students for Fall 2015, in complex networks, graph theory, and vertex pursuit games. Please contact me if you are interested, and you can apply here.
I was appointed to the NSERC Discovery Grants Mathematics and Statistics Evaluation Group for three years.
