James B. Wilson graduated with his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Oregon in 2008 where he studied with Bill Kantor (advisor), Gene Luks, and Charley Wright. Before this he spent nearly four years with the Intel Architecture Labs and still enjoys questions from industry. As a sophomore he asked an innocent question about group isomorphism to Professor F. Rudy Beyl, who kindly delayed a response and instead gave him a copy of a lovely paper by Ada Rottlaender to find the answer himself. This sparked the author's now decades-long obsession with isomorphism in algebra and its complexity.
