Currently (spring semester 2010) I'm teaching one section of Math 221, Linear Algebra. Here is a link to other courses I've taught in the past.

Research interests

Number theory, arithmetic geometry, with an emphasis on explicit methods;
currently, the Brauer-Manin obstruction on K3 surfaces, as well as torsion points on elliptic curves.


Brauer-Manin obstructions on genus-2 K3 surfaces, in preparation.

Torsion points on CM elliptic curves (with P. L. Clark and J. Stankewicz), in preparation.

Tate-Shafarevich groups and K3 surfaces, Math. Comp. 79 (2010), 563-581.

The Brauer-Manin obstruction on Del Pezzo surfaces of degree 2, Proc. London Math. Soc. 95 (2007), no. 3, 735-777.

Del Pezzo surfaces and the Brauer-Manin obstruction, Ph.D. thesis, U.C. Berkeley, 2005.

Errata for this paper.
