Currently, I am a Zassenhaus Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at The Ohio State University. Recently, I defended my PhD under the supervision of Neil Lyall and Ákos Magyar at the University of Georgia. Years ago, I earned my BA in my hometown of Arcata, CA at Humboldt State University.
My research interests are in the field of additive combinatorics, which brings together combinatorial number theory, harmonic analysis, and ergodic theory. I am particularly interested in the area of density Ramsey theory, where the typical problem concerns what "structure" must appear in all "large" sets. My work typically involves applications of Fourier analysis (and its generalizations) to problems in number theory and combinatorics.
In Spring 2018, I am teaching Math 3345 (Foundations of Higher Mathematics).
