This page is dedicated to my past and present Ph.D. students. I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to advise so many wonderful students. Their accomplishments are due to their talents and effort. I am just happy to have had the opportunity to assist them within the confines of my limited abilities.

I am in the process of creating a link for each graduate student containing a short description of how I met them or an interesting moment during their graduate studies. This will take a little while, but it will happen!

Gail wrote a Ph.D. dissertation in geometric combinatorics. Her work centered around the properties of the distance graph in vector spaces over finite fields. Gail now works for a defense contractor in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

Tingsong's thesis is in geometric combinatorics. He was working on configuration problems that combine different types of group actions in the context of naturally arising hypergraphs.

Tritium's thesis was on point configuration problems in fractal subsets of Euclidean space. In particular, it is about dilates of simplexes that are determined by subsets of sufficiently large Hausdorff dimension. Tritium is now a data science intern in the Houston area.

Donggeun is working in analytic number theory and learning theory. His work is centered around derivatives the Riemann zeta function and the Vapnik-Chervonenkis dimension of classes of indicator functions of subsets of the integer lattice. Shashank has recently accepted a postdoctoral position at the Indian Institute of Technology.

Brian is working in harmonic analysis and frame theory. His work is centered around determining whether the L2 space associated with a given measure does, or does not possess a frame of exponentials. He has also done work in geometric combinatorics. Brian just accepted a postdoctoral position at the University of Georgia.

Donggeun Ryou is working in harmonic analysis, number theory and probability. Donggeun's work is centered around the classical Lambda_p problem and Bourgain's proof of the existence of non-trivial Lambda_p sets of every possible order.

Firdavs is working in geometric analysis and geometric combinatorics. In geometric analysis his work is centered around the distribution of eigenvalues of the Laplacian on product manifolds. In geometric combinatorics, his work is focused on generalized configuration problems in vector spaces over finite fields.
