Works in Computer Algebra, where he is an author of a textbook, many papers, posters and presentations. See Mathematical Reviews on JHD for a list that they consider "mathematical" (needs a subscription). His major research effort is a grant in Real Geometry and Connectedness via Triangular Description. He has other PhD research topics: see this topic list. One of his research students talks about the experience.
