In the Winter 2019 term I am teaching Basic Functional Analysis (Math 4280/7280). The course website can be found on UM Learn.


I am interested in operator theory, operator algebras and complex function theory. Graduate students interested in working with me on any of these topics are welcome to send me an email.
