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 two sections of Math 2710W: Transition to Advanced Mathematics (online, synchronous/asynchronous blend).
I taught Mathematical Aspects of Machine Learning which meets MWF at 11:15 in Bousfield A105.
I organized a seminar on clustering high dimensional data,
