Brief Bio

Dr. Pauli wrote his Diplomarbeit (Masters thesis) under the supervision of Michael Pohst at Technische Universität Berlin. He received his Ph.D. from Concordia University in Montreal in 2001 and as a Pohst Doctoral Fellow was the lead developer of the computer algebra system KASH/KANT. He has been at UNCG since 2006.
