My research is focused on analytic number theory with applications to algebraic structures and arithmetic statistics. I have investigated problems concerning the distribution of prime numbers, zeros of L-functions, the Chebotarev density theorem, and binary quadratic forms. These have led to interesting applications involving elliptic curves, modular forms, torsion in class groups, and mass equidistribution on the modular surface. Recently, I have also been studying random multiplicative functions.
Papers are listed roughly in reverse chronological order. Preprints on arXiv.org may differ slightly from the published journal articles.

I want my students to actively engage in the classroom, to develop strong analytical skills for their future studies and careers, and to build a deeper appreciation for mathematics. I recommend the book How Learning Works and this AMS blog series for some ideas on active learning for all experience levels. Other online teaching resources I like to use are also shared below.
