About Me

Hailing from Towson, Maryland, I study mathematics, specializing in number theory. I am the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Emory University, and I am the Vice President of the American Mathematical Society. I am actively involved in mentoring young mathematicians of all ages.

I spend much of my spare time outdoors and with my family. I enjoy surfing, SCUBA diving, cycling, running, and swimming. I am a member of the Timex-Trek Factory Triathlon Team, and I have represented Team USA in the 2012, 2013, and 2014 ITU World Cross Triathlon Championship. In the 1980s I raced bicycles.

Erika and I are the proud parents of Aspen, an accomplished ice skater, and Sage, a talented swimmer and karate black belt.

Research Interests
