I am a professor of mathematics at Rutgers University. My research currently supported by an NSF CAREER grant "The Arithmetic of Fields and the Complexity of Algebraic Structures," for which I was awarded a Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE) as well as by the NSF FRG grant "Obstructions to Local-Global Principles and Applications to Algebraic Structures." While at the University of Georgia, I was awarded the UGA Creative Research Medal, the UGA Outstanding Professor Award. I am a fellow of the American Mathematical Society, and on the editorial board of the American Mathematical Monthly as well as the Notices of the American Mathematical Society.
Finite dimensional division algebras and the Brauer group, linear algebraic groups, algebraic cycles, and field theory.
I am particularly interested in the application of techniques and ideas from algebraic topology and algebraic geometry to problems in algebra.
