I joined the University of Delaware in 2017, and was promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure in September 2019. Currently, I am a rotating Program Director in NSF’s Directorate of Mathematical Sciences / Division of Mathematical Sciences / Analysis Program.
I have been an affiliated faculty with Baylor University’s CASPER research group since 2015. From 2012-2017 I was an Assistant Professor in the Math Department at Baylor University. Prior, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University for three years where I worked with A. Poltoratski and R.G. Douglas. I received my Ph.D. in 2009 from Brown University under S. Treil, and completed my undergraduate studies at the Universität Stuttgart in 2004 under T. Weidl (undergraduate thesis advisor).
My mathematical interests revolve around topics in harmonic and complex analysis. Rank one and finite rank perturbations are a favorite of mine. Much of my work is motivated by mathematical physics and the spectral theory of self-adjoint operators.
I have held the Simons Foundation Collaboration Grant #426258, as well as research grants NSF-PHY 1903450, NSF-DMS 1802682 (previously NSF-DMS 1700204) and NSF-DMS 1261687 (previously NSF-DMS 1101477).
When I manage to spend time with my kids, we often go rock climbing, hiking and/or camping. I absolutely love the mountains and downhill skiing. I really enjoy listening to music.
