Professional Profile

I am primary a number theorist who uses a lot of analysis in my research. My specialty is in sieve methods and the main focus of my research is in classical additive problems in number theory. I also work in frame theory, which has many applications in telecommunication and signal processing. More specifically, my research in frame theory is focused on the classifications of the prime tight frames and its consequences.
Area of Research:
Number theory, frame theory
