## Home PageWelcome to my web page! I am a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science, of the University of Wisconsin---Stout, Wisconsin's Polytechnic University. Our department offers nine (!) undergraduate concentrations, as well as a Master's degree program: - Cyber-Security (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)
- Game Design and Development (B.Sc. in Computer Science)
- Scientific Computing (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)
- Mobile Applications (B.Sc. in Computer Science)
- Software Development (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)
- Mathematics Education (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)
- Business Management (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)
- Actuarial Science (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)
- Interdisciplinary Concentration (B.Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science)

My areas of research interest are: - Writing textbooks (more about that below)
- Cryptology, Cryptanalysis, and particularly Algebraic Cryptanalysis
- Computer Algebra (e.g. Solving Polynomial Systems of Equations, and applications of the same)
- Linear Algebra over Finite Fields, with applications in Error Correcting/Detecting Codes
- Operations Research, Optimization, Game Theory, and other applications of Math to Economics or Finance
- Security Protocols, Proofs of Security, and Practical Security Implementations
- Solving NP-Complete problems in practice via logical satisfiability solvers
Both in my teaching and in my research, I am very interested in computer algebra. I use
SageMath (usually called "Sage"), which is the open-source competitor to Maple, Mathematica,
Maple, and MATLAB. Sage is free and I've written a book about it, Prior to all of that work, my dissertation topic was
solving polynomial systems of equations, particularly to break
codes, a process called For the last few years, I've been working on a book for the
Math-270: For a copy of my curriculum vitae, I offer a short form (8 pages) as well as a long form (19 pages). I also have a document that tracks my citation counts, according to Google Scholar, last updated on August 31st, 2017.
