Teaching

Hiver 2020 : MAT3743 Algèbre appliquée. Les codes correcteurs et la cryptographie, et les outils mathématiques qui réalisent ces innovations.

Research

Broadly defined, my main area of research is algebra. Within this, I specialize in: representation theory, p-adic groups and cryptography.

At the University of Ottawa, I am part of the very large and active Algebra and Lie Theory Research Group, within the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Mathematics, as well as QUASAR, an interdisciplinary group focussed on QUAntum Security using methods from Algebra and Representation theory.

Students

I enjoy supervising students in research projects at all levels, from undergraduate to doctorate; for more details, see Students.

Academic Service

I gladly participate in outreach activities of all kinds, and serve on several committees of the Department and the University. I am a Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Science, and Vice-President, Ontario Section, of the Canadian Mathematical Society.
