In the Spring of 2014 I am teaching

  • Math 118: Fourier Analysis, Wavelets, and Signal Processing

  • Math 24: Freshmen Seminar: Mathematics of Sound and Vibrations


  • Graduate Students


  • Postdoctoral Researchers



    In the Fall of 2004 and in the Spring of 2011 I enjoyed my two sabbatical semesters.



    NEW! ''Semiclassical Analysis'' Graduate Studies in Mathematics 138, AMS

    NEW! Errata

    The schedule of The Paris/Berkeley/Bonn/Zurich Analysis Seminar can be found here.


    Information about journals with which I am affiliated can be found below.

  • Analysis & PDE
  • American Journal of Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics Research eXpress
  • Methods and Applications of Analysis

  • I study mathematical aspects of quantum mechanics, more specifically scattering theory and microlocal analysis. CV.


    Some recent talks:
