The November 2017 Monthly is a Special Issue dedicated to Undergraduate Research in Mathematics which is guest edited by Joe Gallian and myself. It includes papers by Paul-Jean Cahen, Jean Chabert, and Kiran Kedlaya (P-orderings and genralized factorials); Colin Adams (knot theory); Cesar Silva (ergodic theory); Yufei Zhao (independent sets in regular graphs); Rishi Nath (combinatorics); Nathan Kaplan (numerical semigroups); and Carlos Castillo-Chavez, Christopher Kribs, and Benjamin Morin (Arizona State's Theoretical Biology Institute).,

You can access past issues of the Monthly on JSTOR .

Other Editorial Positions:

Journal of Commutative Algebra.









Here is some professional writing which involves my past editing.




Teaching for Spring 2018: Math 3300 Mathematical Thought





My research interests are in commutative algebra, finite abelian groups, combinatorics and number theory. In particular, I am very interested in problems concerning factorization of elements in integral domains and monoids and problems concerning integer-valued polynomials. You can find a complete list of my publications on my VITA. You can track my papers on my Google Scholar Profile. Here are some recent titles (undergraduate co-authors are marked with an asterik).



Talks and Colloquia
