This research was done during the Summer 2002 REU at Central Michigan
University under the direction of Dr. Ken W. Smith. This was after
my sophomore year at the
University of Missouri - Rolla. My mathematical
interests are group, graph, and number theories.
Outside of academia, I love to jitterbug and lindy
hop and am an active member (currently president) of the Ballroom Dancing Club at my
university. In addition, I am slowly but surely
learning the art of Tai Chi Chu'an. In what spare time
I have left, I am also working on my first reading of
the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series.
