General Information

After receiving the Ph.D. in Mathematics from University of Illinois at Urbana—Champaign under advisor Alexandru Zaharescu, I worked for University of Rochester as a postdoctoral faculty under the supervision of Steven Gonek. During this time I also studied the distribution of prime numbers with Daniel Goldston at San José State University, and later served on the faculty of Boston College. Before drifting into mathematics I worked for Trimble Navigation Limited as a senior member of technical staff and designed firmware architecture for low power GPS receiver technologies for positioning, timing and navigation. Memories!

Area of Research

My research is in number theory, mainly having to do with prime numbers and their connection with the Riemann zeta function. My other favorite topics are L-functions, Farey fractions and arithmetic functions. I am also hard at work in probability theory and multivariate statistics, especially related to random polynomials and random processes.



I am dedicated to the goal of promoting significant learning experiences among students. I love learning, teaching mathematics on various levels, and helping students. I am currently teaching

MATH 2560 — Calculus with Analytic Geometry III
MATH 4280/5280 — Analytic Number Theory
MATH 4995 — Departmental Thesis

and serving as faculty advisor for the Math Club.



I gratefully acknowledge grant support from the Mathematical Association of America’s Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants Program and the Dolciani Halloran Foundation for my project Chattanooga Math Circle ($5,966, April 18, 2017—May 31, 2018).
