I am a student of Ted Chinburg in arithmetic geometry.
Description for experts: I am interested in the representation varieties and character varieties of étale fundamental groups of complete curves over fields of positive characteristic into linear groups over finite fields.
Description for non-mathematicians: I work within a broad area of mathematics known as algebra. Within algebra, my sub-area is sometimes called arithmetic. My specific research project is counting.

Tutoring
I am available to tutor most mathematics subjects. I charge
$65/hour. I am also available for small-group tutoring. I charge
$70/hour for groups of two students, $75 for three students, and $80 for
four. Please e-mail me if you would like to set up an appointment.
