Since the Fall of 2000, I have been teaching statistics and calculus at St. Mary’s University. Previous to joining St. Mary’s, I taught statistics and calculus at Mount Royal College (now Mount Royal University) from 2000 to 2006. I have also been teaching statistics at the University of Calgary since 2006, and calculus at Athabasca University since 2013.

I was born and raised in Beijing, China where my interest in mathematics began when I was in grade one. After learning addition, I was very eager to solve all the exercises in the textbook, including the subtraction problems in the second half of the book that were not yet taught. Unfortunately, my answers to all subtraction problems were wrong, as I thought the minus sign was simply a typo and should be corrected to a plus sign. I solved all subtraction problems as addition problems.

When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music and reading financial news. In Spring and Summer, I also enjoy working in my garden, taking care of the 25 plus hybrid tea rose bushes and enjoying the colors, beauty and the scent of the roses.
