I'm Buffy. The Vampire Slayer. And you are...? – Buffy Summers, BtVS Episode 3.1 ("Anne")
I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Georgia.
My research interests are in number theory, especially when attached to the adjectives elementary, analytic, and combinatorial. My thesis, written under the supervision of Carl Pomerance, concerns the arithmetic of polynomials over finite fields. Much of my recent work focuses on Erdős-style problems concerning classical arithmetic functions (such as the Euler φ-function and the sum-of-divisors function) and their iterates.
My text on elementary methods in number theory, Not Always Buried Deep, was published by the American Mathematical Society in late 2009. Please email me with any mistakes you notice to have them added to the errata list here.
