My main area of study is Number Theory. I am particularly interested in units and class groups of number fields; extensions of global fields with restricted ramification; the arithmetic of elliptic curves; and special values of L-functions.   For preprints, curriculum vitae, etc. please visit my Research Page.

I currently serve on the editorial board of:

Publications Mathématiques de Besançon: Algèbre et Théorie des Nombres


I serve as Head for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. I also serve on the Faculty Senate.


I am a participant in the Western Massachusetts Mathematics Partnership.
