Fall 2018: MAT1330 Calculus I for the Life Sciences. The tools of Calculus (the most significant scientific advance of the last millenium, just to be clear on that) and a fascinating chance to see how Calculus is used to model biological systems.

Winter 2019: MAT1332 Calculus II for the Life Sciences. All that and more: linear algebra, dynamical systems, and more sophisticated modesl of biological systems.


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.


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 on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Mathematical Society.
