Research Interest

My main area of research is Computational Algebra or Symbolic Computation. There I am interested in computing with polynomials over finite fields, number fields and, more recently, function fields. I have participated in the design and development of the Maple computer algebra system since 1983. My other research interests include Groebner basis computation, automatic differentiation, algorithms and data structures, and, of course, Maple. I am also interested in algebraic geometry and cryptography.
