I am a numerical algebraic geometer in the math department at CSU. I have various research interests, though my work revolves around the numerical solution of polynomial systems. In particular, much of my work so far is in some way related to the field of numerical algebraic geometry (numerical methods for computing quantities and structures related to polynomial systems). Here is a broader (but not complete) list of some areas that interest me: EXCITING NEWS!

Some of my work is supported by the National Science Foundation, particularly via grants DMS-0914674, DMS-1025564, DMS-1115668, and ACI-1440467 (see note at bottom of page).
Recent support has also come from the Air Force, via grant FA8650-13-1-7317.
