This semester I am teaching Math 182 and Math 301.
After the semester begins, my office hours will be MWF 1010:50, TT
44:50 or by appointment (speak with me after class to arrange a
time).
During the Winter Break I do not hold regular office hours but I am
often available in the mornings 9:3011 if I'm in town.
If you'd like to make an appointment for advising, please call (775)
7844615.
I'd prefer not to make appointments by email.
My field of research is a branch of Analysis called Operator Algebras.
It is an intriguing mixture of Analysis and infinite dimensional
Linear Algebra. It is a relatively new field that has its origins in
the mathematical formalism of Quantum Mechanics. I am particularly
interested in Operator Algebras that arise from Dynamical Systems.
Here is some of my past work.
Here are slides for some recent talks:

Fell bundles associated to groupoid morphisms
given at the Institut Henri Poincaré (Paris).

On kmorphs,
given at WCOAS08 (Flagstaff).

Diagonals in Fell algebras,
given at AMS special session, UC Riverside.

Hausdorff measures and KMS states,
given at GPOTS10, University of Denver.

Quantum Heisenberg manifolds as twisted groupoid C*algebras,
given at Gfest10, Creighton University (Omaha).

Cohomology of higher rank graphs,
given at GPOTS11, Arizona State University.

Cohomology of higher rank graphs,
given at the annual meeting of the Australian
Mathematical Society on 27 September 2011.
