Prior to the Georgia Institute of Technology, he was an Assistant Professor at Indiana University in Bloomington. He was at this institution from 1989 to 1996. His first positions after college from 1987 to 1989 were at Louisiana State University and the University of North Carolina.
His Ph.D. was completed under the guidance of Walter Philipp at the University of Illinois at Urbana in 1987. His guidance was also given for the development of Michael Lacey’s thesis over Banach Spaces, named after the Polish mathematician that originally studied the concept. Lacey also offered a solution related to empirical characteristic functions related to the law of the iterated algorithm.
After graduation, his research has had a lot of focus on harmonic analysis and to a lesser degree ergodic theory and probability.
Harmonic analysis involves representing functions as basic waves and is used in many fields such as neuroscience and number theory. It is his work in harmonic analysis that has awarded him with a large part of his research grants and contracts.
