    NEW!   Conference in honour of Richard Melrose

    In Fall 2019 I am teaching Math 212: Several Complex Variables.

    To appear in Graduate Studies in Mathmematics published by American Mathematical Society.



    In the Fall of 2004 and in the Spring of 2011 I enjoyed two sabbatical semesters and in 2017/2018 a sabbatical year.
