I have formally mentored students at all levels (graduate, undergraduate, high school).
Current projects
Summer 2018. Lyra Qian, Undergraduate student at the University of Calgary
Lyra is holding a PURE award this summer. She will be looking at a problem in graph theory related to the (difficult) question: Do tournaments have the Hrushovski property? Our first goal is to produce code that produces the Hrushovski witness for graphs.
Lyra has applied to attend the CUMC in Saskatoon and the Diversity in Mathematics: Undergraduate Summer school. Look for her there!
Sept 2017present. Davoud Abdi, PhD student at the University of Calgary
Davoud and I are working on a project in infinite graph theory about enddevouring rays, as in this 2017 paper “Infinite enddevouring sets of rays with prescribed start vertices” by J. Pascal Gollin, Karl Heuer.
Dec 2017Present. Nuiok Dicaire, Master’s student at the University of Calgary
We are learning about Quantum Ramsey Theory as presented in these two recent papers:
 A “quantum” Ramsey theorem for operator systems by Nik Weaver. 2016.

An infinite quantum Ramsey theorem by Matthew Kennedy, Taras Kolomatski, Daniel Spivak. 2017.
Feb 2018Present. Jordyn Dyck, Undergraduate student at the University of Calgary
We are looking at the common techniques for solving recurrence relations. “What do these techniques have in common?”, “Are they really the same?”, “What advantages do certain techniques have?”
Here’s a taste of the project, written by someone else.
Past projects
Summer 2017. Lyra Qian, Undergraduate student at the University of Calgary
Lyra and I went through the first chapter of Wilf’s “Generating Functionology”, which lays out the basics of generating functions and their uses.
Lyra filled in all of the details of this chapter and presented it in a way that’s accessible to a firstyear student who has only taken Calculus 2.
Here’s a link to the writeup.
20102014. Math mentorship program at the University of Toronto
Each year I worked with 24 high school students on various mathematical projects. We met once a week for a semester.
 2014 – Crowdsourcing hard problems
 2012 – Small Sum Sets and Product sets of positive integers
 2011 – Contest math and field theory
 2010 (Summer) – Minicourse on Lebesgue measure
 2010 – Characterizing groups of small finite order
