Research:

My advisor was Michael Larsen. My dissertation dealt with the representation theory of compact Lie groups with applications to probablistic phenomena. A somewhat related chunk of my thesis dealt with bounding character values (traces) of such representations. I am also dabbling in algebraic constructions of block designs and applied statistical problems, arising from (what some would say is) an unhealthy obsession with the board game RISK. Read my research statement for more information. These interests reflect my vertiginous nature, making me wide open for undergraduate research. Feel free to stop by my office and discuss.
