General non-sense:

Mostly I teach here. I want to encourage beginning students to think for themselves, so I use a lot of hints and comments. More advanced questions I often just answer.

Relevant personal history:

PhD from Notre Dame in '90.

Drifted from representation theory of algebraic groups to applications of algebra into telecommunications, mostly coding theory, and lately mostly teaching at college level.

3 graduate students with awarded PhDs. Technically it's now 4, but my previous students did most of the work with the latest one, so I should not include him.

I have mostly worked at our local University at Turku, Finland. At one point I tried working for Nokia Research Center. It was ok, but an old dog didn't learn all the tricks, and then they downsized, so I returned to the Uni as a tenured lecturer.
