Short Bio

As of August 2020, I stepped back from the position of Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor to my position as a Professor Mathematics. Prior to my appointment as Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor just over two years prior, I served as the Executive Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Vice Provost for arts and sciences at the Ohio State University. I have also held the position of Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and been a faculty member at the University of Iowa.

I am internationally recognized mathematician. I have held appointments at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkley, and the University of Paris. I have published widely and received financial support for my research from the National Science Foundation, the National Security Agency, and the US Department of Education. I have won numerous awards for both my teaching and my service. I am an elected Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
