I teach a range of courses, mostly upper-level proof-based (or “pure math”) courses for undergraduate and graduate math majors. I also frequently teach introduction to proofs, multivariable calculus, differential equations, and occasionally other classes such as linear algebra.

Fall 2023:

Introduction to Abstract Algebra and Number Theory (Math 305)
Number Theory (Math 404/504)

Previous and upcoming courses


My area of research is commutative algebra and algebraic geometry (MSC 13 and 14).
I study algebraic geometry with actual polynomials, especially Waring rank.

Graduate and undergraduate students I have advised.
I am a co-organizer of the Topics in Algebra, Topology, Etc., Research Seminar: TATERS.
See also the Set Theory Seminar, the Mathematics Department Colloquium, and the Computing Colloquium.
I am a co-organizer of the Boise Math Teachers’ Circle, part of the Boise Math Circles, a math community for teachers and for secondary students.
(Paused due to the pandemic.)
Research workshops and conference special sessions that I have organized, co-organized, or been involved in.
