Areas of Interest

My areas of interest are analysis and differential equations, particularly using tools built from complex and functional analysis to investigate various properties of differential operators. Most recently, I have been working on problems relating to the spectral theory of ordinary differential operators via various methods for constructing spectral measures. Prior research interests include investigations of invariants for specific classes of knots and some problems in inverse scattering theory.
