I am coordinating the Virginia Tech Regional Math Contest at Purdue. The contest will be held, Saturday, October 27.

Send me an email if you would like to participate. Please see this flier for more information.

Check out the Purdue Operator Algebras Seminar and Basic Notions Seminar.

I co-organized the workshop "Classification of Group von Neumann Algebras" which was held at AIM January 29 - February 2, 2018.

My research is currently partially supported by NSF grant DMS-1600857.

Good advice from fellow Hoosier, Bruin, and Boilermaker, John Wooden:

John Wooden's Seven Point Creed

- Be true to yourself.
- Make each day your masterpiece.
- Help others.
- Drink deeply from good books.
- Make friendship a fine art.
- Build a shelter against a rainy day.
- Pray for guidance, and give thanks for your blessings every day.
