Research students and postdocs working under my supervision:

  • Maria Fox is a Paul Olum Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Oregon.  Her research focuses on arithmetic geometry.  She completed her PhD in 2019 at Boston College, under the supervision of Ben Howard.

  • Vivek Pal was a postdoctoral scholar in number theory in 2016-2017.  He is now a visiting assistant professor at Columbia University.  He completed his PhD at Columbia University, under the supervision of Wei Zhang.

  • Heidi van Batenburg-Stafford wrote a senior honors thesis in algebraic number theory (on class groups) 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 started and chair Oregon's Distinguished Lecture Series for Undergraduate Students in Mathematics.  At UNC, Hsu and I started and co-organized a similar lecture series, which was funded by an award from the Kenan-Biddle Partnership. I have been faculty co-supervisor of Oregon's new Undergraduate Mathematics Club since its inception.  During fall 2018, I was a member of the search committee for the new director of Oregon's McNair Scholars program.


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.​
