I am an associate professor with a dual appointment in the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering (CMSE) at Michigan State University. My research interests include computational harmonic analysis, mathematical data science, signal processing, and algorithms for the analysis of large and high dimensional data sets. For a somewhat buggy list of papers organized by citation count you can visit my Google Scholar profile.

In April of 2020 several colleagues and I founded the online One World Mathematics of INformation, Data, and Signals (MINDS) Seminar in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find videos of the One World MINDS Seminar talks as well as links to many other great seminars on the seminar website above.

Research Topics and Talks

If you're interested in learning about some of the things I work on, you can watch any of the talks linked to in the list below on double speed (or even regular speed, to experience every awkward pause in real-time :).

And, if any of those videos made you want to start diving into some of the mathematics behind the talks above, you can start by looking at some of my course notes.

Course Notes from Fall 2020: A Mathematical Introduction to Fast and Memory Efficient Algorithms for Big Data. These notes were scribed by my graduate students Cullen A. Haselby (primarily) and Craig Gross. All comments, complaints, and suggestions are welcome.
