Seek peace, and pursue it.
I am a number theorist and have worked on a range of problems related to elliptic curves, modular forms, p-adic L-functions, and p-adic analytic geometry. I am proudest of my work with Peter Schneider on analytic and continuous representations of p-adic groups.
I am currently interested in Bayesian statistical modelling and in mathematical questions related to genomics and phylogenetic reconstruction.
I served as Dean of UConn’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences from 2008 through 2017 and as interim Provost of the University from February 2017 until April 1, 2018.
I am on leave from UConn until Fall of 2019 and am now a visiting scientist at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, CT.
