Biography and Education

I have been at UM-Dearborn since 2009 after a two year postdoc at Vanderbilt University.  A few of my favorite things: operator algebras, functional analysis, dynamical systems, quantum computing and information, and (increasingly) category theory. For more information, please see my personal webpage.
