Nigel Boston

My research concerns pure and applied algebra. In pure algebra I work on finite and profinite group theory, algebraic number theory (especially Galois representations and pro-p extensions), computational algebra, and arithmetic geometry. In applied algebra I work on applications of algebra to electrical engineering and computer science, including classical ones such as coding theory, information theory, and cryptography and more novel ones such as face recognition, watermarking, optimization, and control theory.
