Research Interests

My research interests are in the fields of number theory and automorphic forms.  Automorphic forms are generalizations of periodic functions which exhibit a large group of symmetries under a discrete group of transformations.  Their study is intimately related with fundamental problems in arithmetic. My recent research has focussed on certain automorphic forms called Eisenstein series on reductive groups and their covers.
