Research
Algebraic curves and their moduli spaces, field of moduli versus field of definition, minimal models,
complex multiplication, arithmetic aspects on Jacobian varieties.
Most of the topics above are being summarized in a book
From hyperelliptic to superelliptic curves which hopefully be ready by Summer 2022.

I am an editor for the Albanian Journal of Mathematics.
The journal started in 2007 and has been published continuously since. It is reviewed by both
MathSciNet and
zbmath .
Interested authors can send papers to me or any member of the Editorial Board. The reviewing process is about 3 months and the papers are posted online as soon as they are accepted.
For more information go to the journal website or contact me directly.

Words of wisdom . . .
"I can't believe they destroyed a perfectly good old farm to build this damn university" (From an old colleague)
“… Maybe you’ll find yourself in a mediocre department, where your work will be intentionally undervalued, people with much lesser research record will be promoted before you, and the hypocrites and frauds will run wild. Don’t get discouraged, don’t give up! Remember why you got into math?!
It wasn’t for the money, recognition, or fame, it was for that special feeling that you get when you find the perfect solution or understand a beautiful argument. That hasn’t changed, son! If you still got that magical feeling, then you are doing fine.” (From Dad)
David Hilbert’s radio address  English translation.
“… There is a secret to mathematics. Do what you can, not what you dreamed of doing! And try to learn from any paper that you write.”
(John Thompson after my dissertation defense)
“Certainly the best times were when I was alone with mathematics, free of ambition and pretense, and indifferent to the world.”
Langlands, in Mathematicians: An Outer View of the Inner World, p142. (From James Milne website)
