Several trainees have completed (or are completing) projects under my supervision:

  • Catherine Hsu is currently my PhD student, studying algebraic number theory.  I also supervised her masters project at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She recently won the AAUW's American Dissertation Fellowship, as well as the University of Oregon's Doctoral Research Fellowship.  Starting in the fall of 2018, she will be a Heilbronn Research Fellow at the University of Bristol.

  • Robert Macy, whose work as an undergraduate student was supported by my grant NSF DMS-1557642 during spring 2016 (when he designed an R Shiny app to explore NHANES demographic data), is now a graduate student at the University of Michigan, studying machine learning in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

  • Vivek Pal was a postdoctoral scholar in number theory under my supervision in 2016-2017.  He is now a visiting assistant professor at Columbia University.

  • Heidi van Batenburg-Stafford wrote a senior honors thesis in algebraic number theory (on class groups) under my supervision at Northwestern University from 2011 to 2012.    

  • Max Dickinson, an undergraduate research student whose work was also was partially supported by my grant NSF DMS-1557642, explored the NHANES dataset during spring quarter 2016.


I organize Oregon's new Distinguished Lecture Series for Undergraduate Students in Mathematics.  At UNC, Hsu and I co-organized a similar lecture series, which was funded by an award from the Kenan-Biddle Partnership.


I co-organized the 30th Annual Automorphic Forms Workshop, which took place in March 2016 at Wake Forest University.  This workshop was partially supported by NSF Grant DMS-1601959.​
