My research area is in symbolic computation, especially for symbolic solutions of integration and summation problems. With integration being so fundamental to many areas of science and engineering, there are many applications, and there is a need for methods to solve these problems exactly. The special functions that arise through integrals, series, and differential equations are also of particular interest. Other interesting applications may involve extending discrete math problems to formulations involving integrals.
