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.


   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.
