- I am working on some problems in algebraic geometry
relating to moduli spaces of curves.
- Most of my publications are available at the arXiv.org preprint server
- A few of my papers that are not available at arXiv.org have
been requested by several people. These include the following:
For more about me, look at
Talks and Presentations and Popular Writing
In Fall 2013 I am teaching Linear and Nonlinear
as part of the new Applied and Computational Mathematics
Student Research Mentoring
I am supervising several
students--both undergraduates and graduates.
My students are mostly working
on problems related to new developments in
theory, FJRW theory (Landau-Ginzburg A-models),
and singularity theory.
My students who were working on problems in
tropical geometry and
tropical algebra have all graduated. They do still have
a webpage with various
results and useful tools, such
as Nathan Grigg's Maple
code for studying tropical geometry and algebra.
Mathletes Getting Respect
What if we treated star students like star athletes? The BYU math
competion team has some real stars the past few years and in
are finally getting some of the respect they deserve.

BYU Mathlete Tumblr page.
We Use Math! Film Series
The BYU Department of Mathematics is working to help inspire young people to study mathematics by producing a series of several high-quality, short films about careers and opportunities in mathematics.
The Series is
called We Use
Math! The first segment is complete and can be seen
at the site
We Use Math.com or on YouTube.
When am I ever going to use Math?
Ever wonder what math is good for and why teachers, parents, school
boards, want students to take lots of math? The BYU Math Department
has a great site to answer the
question When Will I Use
It has resources for students, parents, teachers, and others who
want to know more about
