Department of Mathematics,
Simon Fraser University.
I'm a professor in the Mathematics department at Simon Fraser University (SFU). My main area of research is computer algebra which is also called symbolic computation. I am interested in polynomials and computing with (multivarate) polynomials with various kinds of coefficients, e.g., algebraic numbers. I am also interested in the design of computer algebra systems like Maple. Also, with the advent of multi-core computers, it has become necessary to design and implement parallel algorithms. I am coding in Cilk.
I am currently directing our Computational Algebra Group (CAG) and the Centre for Experimental and Constructive Mathematics (CECM). I am currently teaching MACM 204: Computing with Calculus, a Maple based Calculus course for second year students. In Spring 2016 I taught Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry as a senior undergraduate course and as a graduate course using Cox, Little and O'Shea's Ideals, Varieties and Algorithms.
