Brief Bio

Dr. Saidak received his B.Sc. at The University of Auckland in New Zealand, and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in number theory at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada. He then held postdoctoral and visiting positions at the University of Calgary (Alberta), University of Missouri (MO), Macquarie University (Sydney), and Wake Forest University (NC).
