Research Interests:

My primary area of research is in the algebraic theory of quadratic forms. I also study systems of quadratic forms and systems of homogeneous forms of higher degree. My work in these areas and other areas often involves finite fields, p-adic fields, number fields, and function fields. My other research interests involve Galois theory, especially those aspects of Galois theory that relate to quadratic form theory.
