Short Biography

I grew up on a large dairy farm in Mabou: a small picturesque village on the west coast of Cape Breton Island. Mabou is home to a number of notable artists and musicians. Located, just outside of Mabou is the first single malt whiskey distillery in North America, see the website of the Glenora Distillery for more details.

After finishing Highschool in Mabou I proceeded to Saint Mary's University for my undergraduate degree, and then on to Dalhousie University where I graduated with a Ph.D. in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in 1995. From September of 1995 to August of 2009, I was a professor of mathematics in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at St. F.X.. From August 2009 to July 2015, I was the Dean of Science at St. F.X.. Starting in September 2016, I am now back in the department of Mathematicss, Statistics and Computer Science at St. F.X. doing research, teaching and other duties.
