**Biographical
Sketch**: I was raised in western Massachusetts, and attended Oberlin College
(BA in mathematics, 1983) and the University of Massachusetts (Ph.D. in
mathematics, 1989). Prior to
joining the faculty at Susquehanna, I held positions at the University of New
Hampshire, the University of Pittsburgh/Johnstown, and Juniata College. My
wife, Mary Hague, formerly a professor of Government at Juniata, has more
recently been a visiting professor of environmental studies at Bucknell University. We have one son, Griffin,
age 18.
