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 bioinformatics, unsupervised learning (esp clustering), and in mathematical questions in machine learning. My current work is described more thoroughly at my github pages website.

My recent talks are available at this GitHub repository

I am a Certified Instructor for The Software Carpentries.

Spring 2021

I am teaching Math 2710W: Transition to Advanced Mathematics
in a hybrid format. The link takes you to a complete set of notes and video lectures. In addition, I am co-teaching
Honors Seminar on Machine Learning with Kyu-Hwan Lee.

Fall 2020

I am teaching two sections of Math 2710W: Transition to Advanced Mathematics (online, synchronous/asynchronous blend).

Spring 2020

I taught Mathematical Aspects of Machine Learning which meets MWF at 11:15 in Bousfield A105.

Fall 2019

I organized a seminar on clustering high dimensional data,

I taught two sections of Math 2710: Transition to Advanced Mathematics.

Academic Year 2018-2019

I was on leave as a Visiting Scientist at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine. Notes on what I learned are available at my Cleverly Titled Blog .

Prior to Fall, 2018

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.
