Bio

I'm an algebraist -- more specifically, I like to think about
  • systems of multivariate polynomial equations over finite fields, and
  • recursion finding.
I arrived at CMSU in August 2003, and this is my first academic position. Previously, I worked at the National Security Agency (1989-1999) as a cryptologic mathematician and at Sprint (1999-2003) as an information systems security consultant -- which is why you'll see"cryptology" and "computer security" on my list of interest areas on the departmental page.

Other interests include volleyball, pingpong, bowling, science fiction and fantasy (yes, the screenname is a Brust reference, and yes, I was shocked at what happened at the end of Viscount), Dungeons&Dragons™, and watercolor painting. Note that I said "interest" rather than "expertise".

My office hours are listed to the left, but I'm usually in when I don't have class. Or maybe it should be, "I usually don't have class when I'm in." Or something.

By the way, chibi me was drawn by my daughter, Michelle.
