Overview
Hello! I am a fifth year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at Florida State University (FSU). Before this, I completed a Bachelor's in Mathematics and a Master's in Mathematics at Notre Dame University (NDU)  Lebanon.
My Research interests include Differential/Difference Algebra and Computer Algebra.
Research
 Classifying order 3 linear difference operators over C(x)
that are expressible in terms of lower order difference operators.
 Giving an algorithm for absolute factorization of
recurrence operators and an algorithm to solve third order
difference equations in terms of second order, similar to existing
algorithm for differential equations.
