I am a mathematician. I did my PhD the Department of Pure Mathematics at the University of Waterloo. My supervisor was Kevin G. Hare. My area of research is number theory and in particular, I am interested in computational number theory.

I taught Math 135 in Spring 2010. I was the only instructor, and my responsibilities included preparing lectures, assignments and exams for the course. There were about 115 students in my class.
I have also been a teaching assistant for a variety of faculty and department courses.

From May 2009 to April 2012, I was an organizer for the Pure Mathematics Student Colloquium. This is a venue for graduate students from Pure Math to present their research (or topics related to their research) to the other students in our department. Talks are intended to be accessible to a first-year Master's student. You may wish to take a look at old student colloquiums.
MathOverflow is a wonderful site where mathematicians can ask each other all sorts of questions.
Sage Notebook and Sage homepage are great for computational number theory.
