Before that many things happened.
I am (always) open to accepting students – no matter what department! undergrads are welcome as well! – with strong background in mathematics and interest in its unusual applications. A sample of problems to work on can be found under the problems (this page is a bit of a mess right now; will be updated soon).
Potential students: please do check what kind of problems I am interested in, before sending your resume, and tell me what you are especially interested in.
