My papers and preprints. And some recent talks I've given.
I am a member of WPI's Cryptography and Information Security (CRIS) Research Laboratory.
Here is an incomplete list of WPI MQPs (i.e., undergraduate theses) that I have advised or co-advised. Ocassionally, I add some ideas for potential future MQPs to this list.
Here is a recent draft of my PowerPoint presentation on codes and the compact disc. It's aimed at undergraduates who have seen basic linear algebra and have some imagination.
If you are interested in more general things, you may want to read about my teaching, including courses taught and pedagogical discussions.
For kids who want to have fun with math, here is my page for cool links to wonderful math stuff. I have finally transported my Modular Arithmetic Calculator from Winnipeg to Worcester. It still needs plenty of work, but it's useful for calculations by students such as those working in cryptography.
April 2016 CV, in PDF format.
WPI's Discrete Math Seminar.
MIT Combinatorics Seminar.
I am on the Steering Committee for the Northeast Combinatorics Network (NCN). We help universities in the northeast USA host Discrete Math Day, each of which is a one-day research conference in combinatorics. We also coordinate Summer Combo in Vermont.
