My area of research is
with particular interest in dyadic harmonic analysis and weighted theory. Currently I am working on Hardy spaces defined on product spaces of homogeneous type.

To work with me in harmonic analysis you need to have
a background in analysis, including: Introduction to Analysis I and II (Math 510-511),
Complex Analysis (Math 561-562), Analysis III and IV (Math 563-565, covering the basics of Measure Theory, Functional Analysis, Distribution Theory and Fourier Analysis in R^n)
The courses on Fourier analysis and Wavelets (Math 472/572) and
Harmonic Analysis (formerly Math 565) will provide the foundations for this area
of research, this is just the begining... Perhaps the information posted in
Math 565 -
Harmonic Analysis (Spring 2008)
, and in
Math 572/472 -
Fourier Analysis and Wavelets (Fall 2019)
, can help you as a guide on what is expected and
what are good reference books, as well as lecture notes.
An analyst should have a broader background, the connections to differential
equations, geometry and probability, are very important,
and worth exploring. I would start
making sure you have the basics: ODES/PDES (Math 512-513),
(Topology/Differentiable manifolds) Math 535-536, Math 541 (Probability).
Keep an eye open for special topics courses (e.g. Number Theory and Analysis,
Pseudo-differential operators, Non-linear dispersive equations, Martingales,
Quasi-conformal mappings, Global analysis, Operator theory, etc, etc, etc).
Keep an eye open for colloquia and seminars, as my advisor Peter Jones
told me when I was a student, attending seminars is like going to the opera,
you might not understand a word of say, German, but you get the feeling...
- Mathematics and Statistics Department Interim Chair for Fall 2019 to Spring 2020.
- Elected Member at Large of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) Council 2019-2022.
- I have been a regular NSF panelist for a variety of panels.
- Courses for Fall Semester 2020
- I was the PI for a large NSF grant
Mentoring throught Critical Transition Points (MCTP)
for four years: 2008-2012.
The funded activities include Summer Programs,
Undergraduate Research Projects and Graduate Traineeships.
I am CoPI of an even larger grant (PI is Professor Nitsche)
for five years: 2012-2017. The funded activities involve
Undergraduate Research Projects, Graduate Traineeships, Postdoctoral Fellows,
a strong education component targeting K12 teachers and outreach to schools
promoting interaction between university and high school students.
- I was Department's Graduate Chair from Fall 2016 to Spring 2017 and from Fall 2006 to Summer 2009. I was in charge of overseeing
all our Teaching and Research Assistants, and other graduate students.
During my tenure we instituted the
as part of the In-service Week.
NEW MEXICO MATH CONTEST
- From 1999-2005 I was in charge of writing and grading the
Mexico Math Contest exams. For the academic years 2018-2020 Profs. Honiang Huang and Zeb Chaudhry are in charge. For the academic year 2017-2018, Profs. Janet Vassilev and Hongnian Huang are in charge. For the academic year 2016-2017, Profs. Janet Vassilev and Daniel Appelo were in charge.
From 2008-2016 Profs. Janeth and Dimiter Vassilev were
in charge of the Contest, they received the contest torch from
Prof. Michael Nakamaye and Cathy Briand who were in charge from 2005-2008.
Before my time Prof. L.-S. Hahn was the heart and soul of the Contest for many years, Prof. Hahn was awarded the "Citation for Public Service" by the "American Mathematical Society" in 1998 because of his work with the New Mexico Mathematics Contest. This distinguished citation is presented annually for notable contributions to the mathematics profession through public service.
