## 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 for three years as a postdoctoral faculty under the supervision of Steven Gonek and spent the fourth year at Boston College as a visiting assistant professor. During this time I also worked on prime numbers with Daniel Goldston at San José State University. Before drifting into mathematics I worked for Trimble Navigation Limited and designed firmware 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, helping students and serving as faculty advisor for the Math Club. I am currently teaching:

MATH 2560 — Calculus with Analytic Geometry III

MATH 4280/5280 — Analytic Number Theory

I am excited to teach the following courses in the fall:

MATH 2450 — Introdution to Differential and Difference Equations

MATH 4250 — Modern Abstract Algebra I

## 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).
