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.
Notes on what I'm learning about are available at my Cleverly Titled Blog .
I am teaching Mathematical Aspects of Machine Learning which meets MWF at 11:15 in Gentry 246.
I organized a seminar on clustering high dimensional data,
I taught two sections of Math 2710: Transition to Advanced Mathematics.
Academic Year 2018-2019

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.
