## 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.

## Teaching

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.

## Grants

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).
