### Research support for John Sullivan

My mathematical research on optimal geometry
is currently supported by an individual grant from the NSF.
From May to December 2000, I was the acting director of
the Center for Process Simulation
and Design (CPSD) here at Illinois, funded by NSF/DARPA's OPAAL program.

I collaborated with Hassan Aref and Siggi Thoroddsen of
Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
on a NASA project studying foams.

I am working with Sue Tolman and Bridget Arvold (Math Education)
on the METER project (part of IPLP) to improve the training of highschool
math teachers; we have also received funding from the NSF for the
GK-12 EdGrid program.
