Associate Professor |
208 Yost Hall |

Hello, and welcome. I am an associate professor of mathematics at Case
Western Reserve University. My research is also supported by the American Institute of Mathematics (check out the picture
of AIM's future math castle!)
and the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences.

During the 2013 — 2014 academic year, I will be on sabbatical at
the Institut de
Mathématiques de Toulouse at the Université Paul Sabatier in
Toulouse, France, supported by the Simons Foundation.

I got my Ph.D. from the Department of
Mathematics at Stanford University; my advisor
was Persi Diaconis.
Persi's fun; you should talk to him sometime.
My research is in probability and analysis. I tend to be most interested in
situations in which probability arises naturally in other fields, e.g.
differential geometry, convex geometry, and number theory. I started
out as a Stein's method person, and I'm
still interested in the continuing development and exciting new
applications of the method.
