Hello! I am a graduate student in mathematics at the University of Nebraska. My research interests are in commutative algebra, in particular the homological algebra of commutative rings, and I am working under the direction of Lucho Avramov. Below are a few neat math links, my schedule, the course webpages for my previous and current classes, as well as some of the research projects I am working on.

Teaching Statement
Cohomology of fiber products of local rings,
Preprint, dvi, ps,
pdf,
Talk slides, pdf
Cohomology of connected sums of artinian Gorenstein rings,
(with L. Avramov) in preparation
The paper listed below stem from my honors thesis that I
did for my Honors
Mathematics degree at the University of Texas at
Arlington under the direction of Dave Jorgensen(thanks for
all the help Dave!). We are also working on another project related to the code below.
Building Modules with Prescribed Cohomological Support Set,
(with D. Jorgensen)
Preprint dvi or pdf
Below is a list of the classes that I have taught. I also
taught three Math 106 Recitations previously, but I didn't
have a webpage for those classes.

Neat startup, especially cool because anyone can
contribute and it's open source.
mathworld.wolfram.com
Also cool, but not open source.
www.commalg.org
A neat Commutative Algebra site maintained by
Graham Leuschke(UNL Alum, University of Syracuse),
Sean SatherWagstaff (visiting at Kent State), and Moira McDermott
(Gustavas Adolphus College and has a great mathy site of her
own).
Algebra 901 and 902 (from
Lang's Algebra, and a fair bit from Atiyah and Macdonald's
Introduction to Commutative Algebra once we were into 902)
Topics in Algebra  Cryptography
(from Koblitz's A Course in Number Theory and
Cryptography)
Real Analysis
(from Folland's Real Analysis)
