Educational Activities​

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

  • Jon Aycock is currently my PhD student, studying modular forms and receiving summer support from my NSF CAREER grant DMS-1751281.  Fun fact: As an undergraduate at UNC, he was a student in my linear algebra and abstract algebra courses.

  • 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.​
