What I’ve taught

If you’re new to college, and trying to decide how responsible to be, then here is some information.

Research interests: I study representation theory of (and harmonic analysis on) p-adic groups. On the side, I have studied discrete optimization and fractal tilings of nilpotent Lie groups. More details are available on some of these.  You can also see a list of my papers and preprints.

Take a look at: my academic genealogy, or my connection to Meat Loaf!

I maintained an extended letter to family and friends (not exactly a blog) when I was on leave during the 2005-06 academic year.  During my leave of 2015-16, I posted some highlights.
