Spring 2023 Schedule

Welcome to my home page. I'm glad you stopped by!

I am currently a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Loyola University Maryland (formerly Loyola College) in Baltimore. I came here in August 2003 from the University of Rochester, where I did research and taught for three years. Before that, I was a student at the University of Michigan, earning my Ph.D. under the direction of Trevor Wooley.

My research interests are in number theory. One of the main reasons why I like number theory is that there are so many questions which any junior high school student can understand, but nobody in the world knows how to answer. If you are interested, you can check out my research description above. My personal research is unfortunately not on one of the questions that are really easy to state, but I have tried to write it so that it's not too hard to understand. I hope that I have succeeded. If you're interested in reading a more detailed account of my work, please read either my research statement and NSF grant application on the professional items page or my papers and preprints.
