My research is in the general area of harmonic analysis. In particular, I am interested in the interplay between harmonic analysis and related areas such as complex analysis, partial differential equations, and operator theory. My Ph.D. thesis is concerned with weak-type estimates for singular integral operators in Euclidean, weighted, and multilinear settings.
It is a privilege of mine to share knowledge with students and colleagues. I strive to engage as an educator as often and in as many roles as possible. I have particularly enjoyed presenting research in conferences and seminars, mentoring undergraduate research, teaching university courses, and leading math circle workshops.

Abstract:
We will present a relative formula for asymptotic quadratic growth rates of periodic cylinders for branched cyclic covers that seems to hold in more generality. We will talk about to which extend we can
prove this formula and its inner structure. Background on flat surfaces is provided (mostly informally), as well as a brief introduction into the Siegel-Veech formula and its evaluation. An interesting feature
of the formula for general surfaces of higher genus is that it is essentially the formula for branched
torus covers. It is worth noting that the resulting formula has been predicted by computer experiments using an approach that does not involve the Siegel-Veech formula our proof relies on.
This is ongoing research together with David Aulicino (Brooklyn College), Aaron Calderon (Yale) and Nick Salter (Notre Dame).

We present sharp L^p lower bounds for logarithms of A_\infty weights as a means of estimating the John-Nirenberg constant of the space BMO^p, 0<p<1. The corresponding Bellman function solves the homogeneous Monge-Ampère equation, but the geometry of the solution goes beyond established theory due to the lack of regularity in the boundary condition.

Abstract:
In this talk I will discuss energy decay of solutions of the Damped wave equation. After giving an overview of classical results I'll focus on the torus with damping that does not satisfy the geometric control condition. In this setup properties of the damping at the boundary of its support determine the decay rate, however a general sharp rate is not known.
I will discuss damping which is 0 on a strip and vanishes either like a polynomial x^b or an oscillating exponential e^{-1/x} sin^2(1/x). Polynomial damping produces decay of the semigroup at exactly t^{-(b+2)/(b+3)}, while oscillating damping produces decay at least as fast as t^{-4/5+\delta} for any \delta>0. I will explain how these model cases are proved and how they direct further study of the general sharp rate.

Abstract:
In this talk, I will present joint work with Benjamin Eichinger and Brian Simanek: a new approach to universality limits for orthogonal polynomials on the real line which is completely local and uses only the boundary behavior of the Weyl m-function at the point. We show that bulk universality of the Christoffel--Darboux kernel holds for any point where the imaginary part of the m-function has a positive finite nontangential limit. This approach is based on studying a matrix version of the Christoffel--Darboux kernel and the realization that bulk universality for this kernel at a point is equivalent to the fact that the corresponding m-function has normal limits at the same point. Our approach automatically applies to other self-adjoint systems with 2x2 transfer matrices such as continuum Schrodinger and Dirac operators. We also obtain analogous results for orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle.

Abstract:
A random sequence Z in the unit disc is determined by a sequence of deterministic radii and a sequence of i.i.d. random variables uniformly distributed on the unit circle. Chochran and Rudowicz found the 0-1 Kolmogorov law for Z to be interpolating, that is, the cut-off condition on the a-priori fixed radii in order for Z to be interpolating almost surely. In this talk, we will extend their work to random interpolating sequences for bounded analytic functions in the d-dimensional polydisc and for the Besov-Sobolev spaces on the unit ball. The case of the Besov-Sobolev spaces is more treatable, since such spaces have their interpolating sequences well understood and characterized in the deterministic setting. This is not the case for interpolating sequences in the polydisc: in this second case our necessary and sufficient conditions for almost sure interpolation do not coincide, and they are obtained by looking at the decay of related random Grammians off their diagonals.

Abstract:
We will discuss the two weight inequalities for Calderon-Zygmund operators and commutators. We work in the setting of spaces of homogeneous type defined in the sense of Coifman and Weiss. Subject to the pair of weights u and v satisfying a side condition, we will show a characterization for the boundedness of a Calderon-Zygmund operator T from L^2(u) to L^2(v) in terms of the A_2 condition and two testing conditions. We will also give the two weight quantitative estimates for the commutator of maximal functions and the maximal commutators with respect to the symbol in weighted BMO space on spaces of homogeneous type.

Abstract:
I will discuss my work in progress on the Schrodinger equation perturbed by a random potential. This equation is a simple model for wave propagation in random environments. A key feature of solutions to this equation is a diffusion phenomenon, meaning that the mass of the wavefunctions weakly solves a heat equation. A previous work of Erdos, Salmhofer, and Yau in 2007 derived this heat equation using a complex diagrammatic expansion. I will explain in this talk how wavepacket decompositions can be used to give a more geometric understanding of the problem.

Abstract:
The main result of this talk is that in the space of unit area translation surfaces with one cone point there is a weak-star limit of measures on periodic horocycles that is fully supported in the 7-dimensional space but gives positive measure to a 3-dimensional submanifold. As a consequence we obtain a non-genericity result for the horocycle flow in this space. I will define the terminology. This is joint work with Osama Khalil and John Smillie.

Abstract:
We study the flexibility of the pressure function of a continuous potential (observable) with respect to a parameter regarded as the inverse temperature. The points of non-differentiability of this function are of particular interest in statistical physics, since they correspond to phase transitions. It is well known that the pressure function is convex, Lipschitz, and has an asymptote at infinity. We prove that in a setting of one-dimensional compact symbolic systems these are the only restrictions. We present a method to explicitly construct a continuous potential whose pressure function coincides with any prescribed convex Lipschitz asymptotically linear function starting at a given positive value of the parameter. In fact, we establish a multidimensional version of this result. As a consequence, we obtain that for a continuous observable the phase transitions can occur at a countable dense set of temperature values. We go further and show that one can vary the cardinality of the set of ergodic equilibrium states as a function of the parameter to be any number, finite or infinite.

Abstract:
Optical tomography is the problem of reconstructing interior properties of an object from optical measurements at the boundary. The mathematical version of this problem is to reconstruct the coefficients of a PDE (in my case, a radiative transport equation) from measurements of the solutions at the boundary. In this talk I'll discuss an optical tomography problem with local data, in which measurements are restricted to a subset of the boundary. I plan to introduce the problem, discuss the wider context, and describe a recent result.

Abstract:
Let F be a finite subset of the d-dimensional integer lattice. We say that F is a translational tile of Z^d if it is possible to cover Z^d by translates of F with no overlaps. Given a finite subset F of Z^d, could we determine whether F is a translational tile in finite time? Suppose that F does tile, what can be said about the structure of the tiling? A well known argument of Wang shows that these two questions are closely related. In the talk, I will introduce and demonstrate this relation and present some new results, joint with Terence Tao, on the rigidity of tiling structures in Z^2, and their applications to decidability.

Abstract:
In this talk, finite thin elastic plates involving fractional rotational forces are considered. Using resolvent estimates, new regularity and stability results for the underlying semigroups are established. First, I examine a thermoelastic plate with fractional rotational forces, and prove Gevrey regularity, as well as exponential stability of the associated semigroup. Afterward, I analyze a mechanically damped plate, where the rotational forces and damping involve fractional powers of the Laplacian. For this latter model, it will be shown that the underlying semigroup is analytic, or of a certain Gevrey class, is exponentially or polynomially stable, depending on the relationship between the fractional exponents of the damping and rotational forces. The models considered are new and lie between the classical Euler-Bernoulli model and the Kirchhoff model for thin plates in either case.

(Joint work with Ken Davidson.) Just as a compact convex set is generated by its extreme points, it is known that an operator system is completely normed by its boundary representations.

Abstract:
Approaches to unsupervised clustering and active learning with data-dependent distances are proposed.

Connections will be made to geometric analysis and percolation theory. Applications to image processing and biological networks will be shown, demonstrating state-of-the-art empirical performance.

Abstract:
A measure on R^n is called “dyadic doubling” if the measure ratio of any dyadic parent and its dyadic child is uniformly bounded. This property enables a stopping time argument presented by Katz and Pereyra in their 1998 survey on the L^p boundedness of Haar multipliers. Highly inspired by these two authors’ work, this presentation focuses on extending their results to weighted spaces. In particular, we are interested in the L^p boundedness of Haar multipliers with respect to weights in dyadic Muckenhoupt classes, as they guarantee dyadic doubling, and the closely related weights in dyadic reverse Hölder classes.

Abstract:
We classify functions f:(a,b) -> R which satisfy the inequality tr f(A)+f(C) >= tr f(B)+f(D) when A<= B<= C are self-adjoint matrices, D= A+C-B, the so-called trace minmax functions. (Here A <= B if B-A is positive semidefinite, and f is evaluated via the functional calculus.) A function is trace minmax if and only if its derivative analytically continues to a self map of the upper half plane. The negative exponential of a trace minmax function g=e^{-f} satisfies the inequality det g(A)g(C) <= det g(B)g(D) for A, B, C, D as above. We call such functions determinant isoperimetric. We show that determinant isoperimetric functions are in the ``radical" of the the Laguerre-Polya class. We derive an integral representation for such functions which is essentially a continuous version of the Hadamard factorization for functions in the the Laguerre-Polya class. We apply our results to give some equivalent formulations of the Riemann hypothesis. Finally, we discuss some recent joint work with Kelly Bickel and Meredith Sargent on relaxations of the above framework, and an avenue for obtaining zero-free regions for the Riemann zeta function.

Abstract:
This talk considers coherent systems arising from unitary representations. It is shown that frames and Riesz sequences can be obtained whose dual systems form molecules, ensuring that their elements satisfy appropriate size estimates as if they were obtained one from the other by the group action. As a consequence, the canonical expansions extend to associated Banach spaces. The main tool is a local holomorphic calculus for convolution-dominated operators, valid for groups with possibly exponential volume growth.

Abstract:
In this presentation we consider an inverse and control problem for the Mindlin--Timoshenko plate system, which is a strongly coupled two dimensional system consisting of a wave equation and a system of isotropic elasticity, that arises in modeling plate vibrations especially at high frequencies and thicker plates. More precisely, we prove the global uniqueness of recovering the plate density from a single boundary measurement under appropriate geometrical assumptions. Secondly, we demonstrate the controllability of the system via an indirect control technique that proves a two-level indirect inverse observability estimate. Our approach for both problems relies on diagonalizing the principal part of the system and making it a system of wave-like equations.

Abstract:
We describe a new representation technique for one and multiple parameter singular integrals in terms of continuous model operators. Unlike the well established dyadic counterpart, our representation reflects the additional kernel smoothness of the operator being analyzed. Our representation formulas lead naturally to a new family of T(1) theorems on weighted Sobolev spaces whose smoothness index is naturally related to kernel smoothness. I present the one parameter case, where we obtain the Sobolev space analogue of the A2 theorem; that is, sharp dependence of the Sobolev norm of T on the weight characteristic is obtained in the full range of exponents. In the bi-parametric setting, where we obtain quantitative Ap estimates which are best known, and sharp in the range max{p, p’} ≥ 3. These estimates are beyond the reach of current dyadic methods.

Abstract:
It is well known that if a finite set of integers A tiles the integers by translations, then the translation set must be periodic, so that the tiling is equivalent to a factorization A+B=Z_M of a finite cyclic group. Coven and Meyerowitz (1998) proved that when the tiling period M has at most two distinct prime factors, each of the sets A and B can be replaced by a highly ordered "standard" tiling complement. It is not known whether this behavior persists for all tilings with no restrictions on the number of prime factors of M.
In an ongoing collaborations with Izabella Laba, we proved that this is true when M=(pqr)^2. In my talk I will discuss this problem and introduce the main ingredients of the proof.

Abstract:
The extrapolation theorem of Rubio de Francia is one of the most powerful tools in the theory of weighted norm inequalities: it allows one to deduce an inequality (often but not necessarily: the bounded of an operator) on all weighted L^p spaces with a range of p, by checking it just for one exponent p (but all relevant weights). My topic is an analogous method for extrapolation of compactness. In a relatively soft way, it recovers several recent results about compactness of operators on weighted spaces and also gives some new ones. This is a joint-work with Tuomas Hytönen.

Abstract:
A fundamental idea in optimal transport is that the optimality of a transport plan is reflected by the geometry of its support set. Often this is key to understanding the transport problem. On the level of support sets, the relevant notion is c-cyclical monotonicity. The relevance of this concept for the theory of optimal transport has been fully recognized by Gangbo and McCann, based on earlier work of Knott and Smith and Ruschendorf among others. Since then it has been understood through the work of various authors that analogous "monotonicity principles" are also highly useful in a number of related areas. The goal of this talk is to provide an introduction to these ideas and to sketch some of the recent developments.

Abstract:
The Bergman and Szego projections are fundamental operators in complex analysis in one and several complex variables. Consequently, the mapping properties of these operators on L^p and other function spaces have been extensively studied. In this talk, we discuss some recent results for these operators on strongly pseudoconvex domains with near minimal smoothness. In particular, weighted L^p estimates are obtained, where the weight belongs to a suitable generalization of the Bekolle-Bonami or Muckenhoupt class. For these domains with less boundary regularity, we use an operator-theoretic technique that goes back to Kerzman and Stein. We also obtain weighted estimates for the endpoint p=1, including weak-type (1,1) estimates. Here we use a modified version of singular-integral theory and a generalization of the Riesz-Kolmogorov characterization of precompact subsets of Lebesgue spaces. This talk is based on joint work with Brett Wick and Cody Stockdale

Abstract:
The classical Calderón-Zygmund decomposition is a fundamental tool that helps one study endpoint estimates near L1. In this talk, we shall study an extension of the decomposition to a particular operator valued setting where noncommutativity makes its appearance, allowing to get rid of the (usually necessary) UMD property of the Banach space where functions take values.

Abstract:
Inverse problems have known a recent development in many fields like signal processing, medical imaging and more recently paleomagnetism. Broadly speaking, an inverse problem consists in reconstructing from a set of measurements the original source. We consider a two dimensional inverse problem in magnetism to estimate the net moment represented by the mean value of a function supported on an interval K of the real line from the partial knowledge of the magnetism on another interval S located on the parallel line to K at height h. We will see how this question can be rephrased using complex analysis, harmonic analysis and operator theory. To estimate the mean value, we will construct and solve a constrained approximation problem. This talk is based on a joint work with Juliette Leblond, INRIA, France.

Abstract:
We will discuss some recent results about commutators of certain Calderon-Zygmund operators and BMO spaces and how these generate bounded operators on Lebesgue spaces. Results on the Heisenberg group, pseudoconvex domains with $C^2$ boundary, and other examples will be explained. This talk is based on joint collaborative work.

Abstract:
The weak-type (1,1) estimate for Calderón-Zygmund operators is fundamental in harmonic analysis. We investigate weak-type inequalities for Calderón-Zygmund singular integral operators using the Calderón-Zygmund decomposition and ideas inspired by Nazarov, Treil, and Volberg. We discuss applications of these techniques in the Euclidean setting, in weighted settings, for multilinear operators, for operators with weakened smoothness assumptions, and in studying the dimensional dependence of the Riesz transforms.

Abstract:
Essentially by the non-availability of singular integrals on L^1, one cannot estimate the L^1-norms of the full k-th order gradients against those of k-th order differential expressions in general. This is known as Ornstein's Non-Inequality. Over the past years, however, a theory has been developed that allows to estimate lower order quantities by the L^1-norms of differential expressions in a sharp way. In this talk, which is joint work with Lars Diening (Bielefeld), we present sharp conditions on differential operators to retrieve the well-known boundary trace estimates from the Sobolev case.

Abstract:
The sampling problem concerns the reconstruction of every function within a given class from their values observed only at certain points (samples). A density theorem gives necessary or sufficient conditions for such reconstruction in terms of an adequate notion of density of the set of samples. The most classical density theorems, due to Shannon and Beurling, involve bandlimited functions (that is, functions whose Fourier transforms are supported on the unit interval) and provide a precise geometric characterization of all configurations of points that lead to reconstruction. I will present modern variants of these results and their applications in other fields of analysis.

Abstract:
In this talk, we look at the spectrum of the Kohn Laplacian on spheres \mathbb{S}^{2n-1} and the Rossi sphere \mathbb{S}^3_t. We relate spectral calculations to the geometry of the manifolds. In the first part, we use the lower bounds on the essential spectrum to understand the embeddability of the Rossi sphere. In the second part, we compute the leading coefficient in the asymptotic expansion of the counting function on \mathbb{S}^{2n-1} by a Tauberian argument, and we relate it to the volume of the spheres.

Abstract:
We present a unified method to obtain weighted estimates of linear and multilinear commutators with BMO functions, that is amenable to a plethora of operators and functional settings. Our approach elaborates on a commonly used Cauchy integral trick, recovering many known results but yielding also numerous new ones. We also look at some new two weight bump conditions for commutators.
