In general, my ongoing international collaborative research with Dr. N.F. Smyth (Edinburgh University, Scotland) and Prof Minzoni(Mexico) focuses on solitons and solitary waves, including the development of methods to analytically describe solitary wave evolution, with particular emphasis on the inclusion of the radiation (ie noise) shed as they evolve.
This general theory has been applied to specific applications, including nematicons, switching in optical fibres in the presence of Raman scattering and the Optical amplifiers.
My research results have been used by engineers, including experimental engineers, such as, Professor Assanto, Rome Tre University, Italy). This has lead to collaborative research work with Professor Assanto.
Problem solving, learning and discovery.
Hmm! Teaching BMathEd students(?). Getting my first home run at the mere age of 50-plus.
Being sent to school at four as my mother thought I was five! Or maybe, my cheekbone collecting a 'softball' when my glove missed an infield fly ball.
All the time when finding solutions to problems!
Moneywise no. One's richness comes from the discovery, learning and understanding of new things, concepts and ideas.
A teacher. I was teaching the next door neighbour's kids when I was 10.
I love learning and discoverying, so yes it has!
Being a mathematician, I would learn how to write good english!
Go do it! Be passionate about what you are doing, enjoy the thrill of new discovery and learning. Communicate and network.
Lost for words but not for mathematics!
