Research Interests
I am working on Number Theory (both algebraic and analytic), and
Representation theory. In particular, I am interested in arithmetic
properties of function fields, Waring's problem, and the Langlands
program.
Teaching
I have taught various undergraduate and graduate courses at MIT,
Purdue, NTU, Queens and Waterloo over the past twenty years, and
supervised more than ten graduate students. Currenly I am several
projects suitable for undergraduate and graduate students.
