Biography
Since September 2013 I have been on the faculty at Carleton University. From January 2010 to August 2013 I was on the faculty at the University of Lethbridge. From July 2007 to December 2009 I was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Lethbridge studying with Dr. Amir Akbary, Dr. Nathan Ng, and Dr. Habiba Kadiri. During the first two years I was a PIMS post-doctoral fellow.
I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Queen's University in May 2007. I studied under Dr. Ram Murty.

Research
In general, I am interested in analytic number theory, and I am especially interested in L-functions. Primarily I have been studying the relationship between the generalized Riemann hypothesis and the existence of solutions to Diophantine equations, using methods arising out of the negative solution to Hilbert's 10th problem.
