Teaching

In Spring of 2014, I am teaching Finite Mathematics (MAS 150), Calculus II (MAS 162), Mathematics of Finance I (ASC 385), and Number Theory (MAS 390).   


Research

I research algebraic number theory, particularly special values of L-functions, and elementary number theory. Particular topics that interest me include:
  • Stark's conjectures, specifically the Brumer-Stark conjecture
  • integrality properties and congruences for values of equivariant Artin L-functions
  • Leopoldt's conjecture
  • explicit reciprocity laws and explicit class field theory
  • Euler systems
  • continued fractions
