What I've taught

If you're new to college, and trying to decide how responsible to be, then here is some information.

Research interests: I study representation theory of (and harmonic analysis on) p-adic groups. On the side, I have studied discrete optimization and fractal tilings of nilpotent Lie groups. More details are available on some of these. You can also see a list of my papers and preprints with abstracts, or without abstracts.
Take a look at: my academic genealogy, or my connection to Meat Loaf!
I was on leave during the 2015-16 academic year. Here are some highlights.
