Currently, I am an undergraduate attending the University of Nebraska - Lincoln majoring in mathematics with
minors in computer science and physics. During the summer of 2001, I participated in an REU at the University of
Houston. While there, under the direction of Dr. Blecher, I researched concepts involved with operator algebra and
wrote the paper I have submitted to this journal. I am currently continuing research in this area while at Nebraska
and hope to develop it into an undergraduate thesis. Pure mathematics, in particular operator algebra, is my
primary mathematical interest but I still hope to explore other avenues. After graduation, tentatively planned for the
spring of 2003, I plan to pursue a masters and possible PhD. in mathematics. In my spare time I enjoy attending
numerous concerts, plays, and movies.
