Papers on graph theory were presented at American Mathematical Society meetings in Atlanta (invited), San Francisco, Dallas, New York, and Baton Rouge, and at Pennsylvania State University. There was also a presentation at the Summer 1975 UCLA International Conference on Inverse Problems. 

The paper Ulam's conjecture and graph reconstructions was recognized with the Lester R. Ford prize by the Mathematical Association of America. 

Undergraduate  calculus, linear algebra, abstract algebra, complex analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, Fourier series and integrals, topology, mathematical physics, history of mathematics, Laplace transforms, probability, foundations of mathematics (offered jointly with a member of the philosophy department at William and Mary). 
Graduate  topology, real function theory, harmonic analysis, advanced engineering mathematics, special functions, number theory, graph theory, dynamical systems, Fourier analysis. 

From 1971 through 1976, approximately $12,000 per year from NASA Langley, through the Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering. 
Principle Investigator on a $100,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, for the improvement of science and mathematics K12 education (jointly written with faculty from Auburn University and the UAB School of Education). 
Pending  $5,000,000, five year grant for improvement of mathematics and science K12 education in Alabama (written in conjunction with faculty in the sciences, mathematics and education at UAB, and with faculty and administration at other institutions of higher education in Alabama, including Auburn, Miles College and the University of North Alabama). 
I have also written parts of Title III and National Science Foundation facilities renovation grant proposals for UAB, and my office serves as a focal point for information on funding sources and as a contact with the UAB Office of Grants and Contracts.
