About me

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Iowa State University. My research is primarily concerned with commutative and computational algebra and algebraic geometry. My advisor was Sankar Dutta. Previously I held positions at the University of California-Riverside, MSRI and Rider University.

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 combinatorial and computational commutative algebra for the journal. For more information about the journal, see here: http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscinet/ijac.
