I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Elon University. I have been with the department since August 2010. Prior to that, I was a graduate teaching associate at Arizona State University – earning my Ph.D. in May 2010 under the supervision of Dr. John Jones.
I am a national Project NExT fellow (blue10 dot), and a recipient of Arizona State University's Dean's Distinguished Teaching Award. Starting in February 2012, I will be directing the undergraduate research program for the department of mathematics and statistics at Elon University.
My research interests lie in algebra and number theory. Current projects are centered around computational aspects of nonabelian local class field theory, with special emphasis on p-adic fields and their arithmetic invariants arising from the Galois correspondence. The fundamental importance of the p-adic numbers is supported by the fact that they play a significant role in computational attacks on two of the most important unsolved problems in mathematics; the Riemann Hypothesis and the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture. For more information on these problems, see the Clay Mathematics Institute's homepage.
