Seek peace, and pursue it.
I am a number theorist and have worked on a range of problems related to elliptic curves, modular forms, p-adic L-functions, and p-adic analytic geometry. I am proudest of my work with Peter Schneider on analytic and continuous representations of p-adic groups.
I am currently interested in bioinformatics, Bayesian statistical modelling and in mathematical questions related to genomics and phylogenetic reconstruction.
I served as Dean of UConn’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences from 2008 through 2017 and as interim Provost of the University from February 2017 until April 1, 2018.
I was on leave from UConn during the academic year 2018-2019 as a visiting scientist at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, CT. Starting August 16, 2019 I am back at UConn in the Department of Mathematics.
