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 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 was on leave from UConn for the academic year 2018-2019 as a visiting scientist at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, CT.

Notes on what I'm learning about are available at my Cleverly Titled Blog .

My recent talks are available at this GitHub repository

I am a Certified Instructor for The Software Carpentries.

I am organizing a seminar on clustering high dimensional data
that meets Tuesday afternoons at 2 p.m. in Monteith 245.


In the Fall of 2019, I am teaching two sections of Math 2710: Transition to Advanced Mathematics, MWF at 10:10 and 11:15 in Monteith 421 and 113 respectively. See the HuskyCT site for more information (login required).
