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.


Research Interests:

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.
