Here are other classes that I particularly enjoy teaching because

they are directly related with my research interests:

MATH 114 Convex Geometry

MATH 115A *"Theory of Numbers"* .

MATH 115B *"Theory of Numbers"* .

MATH 128C *"Numerical Differential Equations''*.

MATH 145* Combinatorics *

MATH 146 *"Algebraic Combinatorics''*.

MATH 165 *"Math and Computers"*
.

MATH 167 Applied Linear Algebra

MATH 168 *"Mathematical Optimization''*.

MATH 170 * Mathematics for Data Sciences and Decision Making. *

*
MATH 189 Advanced Problem Solving: Capstone *

*
MATH 245 "Enumerative
Combinatorics" . *

*
*

*
MATH 246 Algebraic & Geometric Combinatorics *

*
MATH 250ABC "Algebra" . *

*
MATH 258B Discrete Optimization *

*
Every two years or so I try to teach a graduate class (as Topics class
MATH 280) on my most current research interests.
Here are the last two I taught: *

*
MATH 280 "Algebraic and Geometric
Methods in Optimization''. *

*
MATH 280 Geometric and Topological Tools in Game Theory and Optimization
*

*

- I love to work with students in research projects.
I always have a weekly research seminar in various math projects.

Some are suitable for undergrads. Contact me if you are interested. I have been undergraduate research coordinator several times. - I always try to convince students into becoming math majors or minors.
For this reason, I have taught

Freshman Seminars, math club advisor, and taught for COSMOS (a program for talented high school students in California). - I was faculty advisor for CALESS (student club for Chicanos and la
tinos in Engineering and Science). I support

MCNAIR, MURRPS (programs to facilitate the participation of minorities in the mathematical and physical sciences).

Here is a list of my former Ph.D Students (recent appointment listed).

- Ruriko Yoshida 2004 (Associate Prof. Statistics Univ. Kentucky)

- Tommy Hogan 2019 (Data Scientist at Tatari Inc., Los Angeles)
- Zhenyang Zhang 2022 (Staff Scientist at Google Inc.)

At UC Davis alone Prof. De Loera has supervised for the work of many undergraduates (those that went to graduate school marked with schools names, * means wrote a paper or a senior thesis).

Here are some papers in which undergraduates student contributed as co-authors.
