 Algebraic geometry; Number theory; Associative rings and algebras

My research is in algebraic geometry and number theory. I am interested in systems of polynomial equations: Do they have a solution? If so, can we parameterize all the solutions? Can a computer do this in reasonable time? After getting my Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania, I had an NSF postdoc at Emory University and NYU and a fellowship at the Max Plank Institute in Bonn. For the last six years I was a Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale before arriving at Dartmouth. Many other experiences influenced me on the way to becoming a mathematician: I spent summers fighting forest fires in Oregon while deciding whether to major in math at Reed College; I decided to go to graduate school after traveling to France on a Fulbright, where I rediscovered my love for math research; during graduate school, I worked as a volunteer mechanic at a nonprofit bicycle cooperative and youth program. Inspired by my mentors along the way, I have always been motivated to give back and help students from all backgrounds find a connection to mathematics.
