Research overview

My research interests are in the area of combinatorics and finite fields. One of my main current research activities concerns the application of combinatorial structures (particularly external difference families and their generalizations) to coding theory and cryptography.  I am also interested in how combinatorial objects such as graphs, digraphs and permutations may be viewed as relational structures.
