    I study computationalgebraicomputation. ...You get the idea: something to do with computing and something to do with pushing mathematical symbols around. The words are run together to indicate the fact that the practice of algebra and of computing have much in common, the more so in the discipline called Computer Algebra. I am specifically interested in computational exact linear algebra, (matrix problems where the entries are integers and/or expressions in parameters and indeterminates and where exact, complete solutions are sought). To that end I care about anything it takes: algorithms, languages, machines, system design issues, parallel and distributed computing, ....
