- 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.
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.
