### Teaching info (Fall 2011)

I am currently teaching Math 325K - Discrete Mathematics for beginning mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists. The course covers logic, proof methods, set theory, and elementary number theory - with a heavy focus on proofs. This course will use an inquiry-based learning approach. The course website is Blackboard.

I am also teaching two large sections of Math 408C - Differential and Integral Calculus, the standard first-year calculus course directed at students in the natural and social sciences and at engineering students. The course website is Blackboard.

### Research Interests

My research interests are primarily concerned with heights of algebraic numbers. The study of heights belongs to a very interesting intersection of mathematical theories. My broader research interests are mainly those theories which have contributed to my understanding of heights. Those include: Algebraic and Analytic Number Theory, Arithmetic of Dynamical Systems, Potential Theory, and Functional Analysis.

### About me

I received my bachelor's degree in Mathematics from
the University of Texas at Austin in 2004, and stayed on at the university as a graduate student in Number Theory studying under the supervision of Jeffrey
Vaaler. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics in May 2011.
