Research Interests: With E. Tengan, currently studying cyclicity in the Brauer group of an elliptic curve using duality theories for abelian varieties. It is well known that lines and conics (which have genus zero) have no interesting arithmetic beyond Galois theory, but that elliptic curves (which have genus one) are different. Our research is part of a broader program to investigate arithmetic dimensions of function fields of curves, partly in an attempt to find interesting counterexamples in the world of division algebras.
