Ph.D. (Notre Dame), docent, lector University of Turku,

Research interests:
 Applications of algebra in
coding theory:
I spend a lot of time studying various and sundry telecommunications applications of algebraic number theory, division algebras in particular, algebraic curves and group theory.
Other main tools in my box are finite fields, Galois rings and their characters. They can be applied to the design of errorcorrecting codes (and their decoding) and good families of sequences.
