News: I am teaching a distance course the Winter/Spring 2024 term and will divide my time between College Station, the Newton Institute in Cambridge and the Simons-Laufer Mathematics Institute in Berkeley.
Samuel Sottile, my son and current (2023–4, in Mathematics) Churchill Scholar, was just awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship that he will use at Stanford next year.
(We both graduated from Michigan State University, held Churchill Scholarships, and NSFGR Fellowships; he pips me on being a Goldwater Scholar.)
