Editorial Duties

I am on the editorial board of the International Journal of Algebra and Computation, a journal that publishes algebra papers that have connections to combinatorics, computation or algorithms. I specifically handle papers in commutative algebra for the journal. For more information about the journal, see here: http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscinet/ijac.
