My research has focused on a wide variety of topics in theoretical computer science, including quantum computing, cryptography, design and analysis of algorithms, and distributed computing. I’m also interested in harmonic analysis, and its relationship to combinatorics, computing, and quantum mechanics.
I organize UConn’s Introduction to Aikido course (AH1200-002). This is a one-credit course, typically offered in both the Fall and Spring, focusing on the physical practice of Aikido, a Japanese martial art. The course is offered as part of the Allied Health program.
The course meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 7:00-8:30, in the Hawley Armory Mat Room (downstairs).
I typically use the CSE Moodle engine for course administration.
