Welcome to my home page. I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York. Please drop by my office and say hello. If you want, you can even read my vitae or about projects I've worked on.  This term we are learning about commonly used data structures and how to design and evaluate algorithms in CSE 382,  about cryptography and criptanalysis in CIS 428/628,  and about windows programming in C++ with .NET in CSE 483.  Student teams in CSE 483 are developing 2D computer games.  I am interested in all sorts of stuff and like to learn about new things.  If you are having problems with one of your courses or just want to chat,  please drop by my office after 10:00 AM.  You can check my schedule to see when I'm supposed to be someplace else.

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Bela Bollobas's Modern Graph Theory.

I am an in-depth account of graph theory, written with the student in mind; I reflect the current state of the subject and emphasize connections with other branches of pure mathematics. Recognizing that graph theory is one of several courses competing for the attention of a student, I contain extensive descriptive passages designed to convey the flavor of the subject and to arouse interest.
