I'm now living in Northeastern New Jersey, after completing a post-doctoral position at Simon Fraser University, and this web site is nearly obsolete.

My vita and
research
statement. (Both are "pdf" files, with links. Last updated October, 2004.)

My Ph.D. Thesis:
*Analytic Computation of the Prime-Counting Function*

Here are announcements for
Math 285, Section G8

Please send mail to me if you have problems picking up the files below. These slides are available in (uncompressed) pdf format, and in compressed (gzipped) postscript format. In some cases the pdf files have clickable links.
