The visiting assistant professor of mathematics enjoys Easton's "wonderful combination of city amenities, college-town charm, and nature."
Fall course: Calculus III
About my work: “I study the intersection of functional analysis, operator theory, and complex analysis. I specifically focus on noncommutative function theory, or free analysis, which attempts to solve difficult open problems that are classically commutative in nature by reframing them in the noncommutative setting. This theory is applied in systems and control engineering and semi-definite programming.”
My moment of zen: “In June, since air travel wasn’t ideal, I drove from Connecticut to St. Louis and then from St. Louis to Easton. What made the long trip worthwhile was finally seeing my new place of living and getting to explore the wonderful area around Lafayette. Stepping onto Lafayette’s beautiful campus for the first time made it clear why I worked so many long nights in graduate school. I won’t be forgetting those feelings for quite some time.”
What I like about Easton: “Easton offers a wonderful combination of city amenities, college-town charm, and nature. There are also several quality coffee shops near campus.”
