My primary area of research is Combinatorics. In this, I examine Design Theory and Coding Theory.
My secondary area of research is Finite Geometry. Here I consider Geometries and Designs in PG(n,q); Caps in PG(n,q).
I am also interested in racquetball, jogging, bicycling, classical music, as well as coaching and refereeing of soccer games in the local soccer league.
