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.
I am teaching Math 3230: Abstract Algebra. in a "flipped" format. The link takes you to a set of (developing) notes and video lectures.
In Spring of 2019, I taught a Master's level seminar course on Machine Learning and the notes for that course are available here.
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.
