I am currently more of a recreational academic mathematician (there are only so many hours in a day) after finishing up a post-doctoral fellowship at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia. I completed my PhD from the University of Calgary with my dissertation “Constructing and Tabulating Global Function Fields” in 2013.
My research focuses on problems in computational and algebraic number theory, and their applications. I am particularly interested in efficient algorithms to compute invariants of global fields, and conversely to construct fields with particular invariants. I also dabble in data science and any other math that’s fun and interesting.
My apologies that this site is not kept particularly up to date. If you want to get a hold of me you can use my gmail address; it’s colinoftheweirs.
