**About me:**

I have been teaching at SUNY Geneseo since Fall 2008, when I completed my Ph.D. at UW Madison. My area of research is number theory, or more specifically arithmetic geometry. My thesis advisor was Jordan Ellenberg.

For more information about my background, you can see my CV.

**Current projects:**

Upstate New York Inquiry-Based Learning Consortium. 2014-17 grant.

Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics $22,000 grant received for a 2014-15 project with undergraduates. (Local website coming soon.)

Council for Undergraduate Research. Elected nationally for a 2014-17 term.

Application for Tenure and Promotion to Associate Professor (2014).

Research on open questions related primarily to my previous papers. See CV above for papers, workshops, and conferences.

Writing course textbooks for Introduction to Mathematical Proof (under review), Theory of Numbers, and Abstract Algebra.

**Conferences:**

Click here to see a list of conferences that I have attended or plan to attend in the near future.

Generally, I try to make it to several number theory conferences listed here Number Theory Conferences, New and Old or here
Arithmetic Geometry conferences.

To see a list of some talks that I have given, see my CV above.
