Position: Associate Professor
InterestsTeaching. I especially enjoy teaching calculus and analysis (continuous mathematics), because the ideas involved are deep and beautiful and lead to powerful mathematical tools for describing and understanding nature.
Research InterestsI am interested in complex analysis, harmonic analysis, and operator theory. For quite some time now, I have been writing an introductory textbook in real analysis.
