Some pics from
the KME end-of-year party, in a powerpoint presentation.
I'm an algebraist -- more specifically, I like to think about
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
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.
