I obtained my Ph. D. (with concentration on graph theory) and M.S. (with concentration on computer science) in May 1999. Between August 1999 and May 2001 I taught computer science and computer information science courses in the School of Computer and Information Sciences at Georgia Southwestern State University. I joined Dept. of mathematical sciences at University of South Carolina Aiken in Fall 2001.
