Research Interests

Algebraic number theory, especially Iwasawa Theory, L-functions, and computations in algebraic number fields. My work has focused on unravelling some of the mysteries of algebraic number theory embodied by Stark's conjecture, Leopoldt's conjecture, and unresolved questions in classical Iwasawa theory.
