Personal Statement:

I completed my Master's Degree in mathematics at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in September 2004. My areas of interest are cryptographic key agreement and zero-knowledge proofs. Previous to this, I received my Bachelor's Degree (with honors) in mathematics, also from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.

In 1996, as a senior at Albuquerque Academy, I was a National Merit Semifinalist. As an undergraduate, I was awarded a Silver Scholarship ($2000) six times, and a Presidential Scholarship ($1350) once, as a result of meeting high standards of academic achievement. In December 2001, I participated in the William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition, earning a score of 10 out of 120 (the median score that year was 1). In fall of 2003, I was accepted into the SFS program for the duration of two semesters.
