I am currently Craig McKibben & Sarah Merner Endowed Professor of Mathematics at the University of Washington. My work is mostly in algebraic geometry (of an arithmetic flavor), but lately I’ve also been cultivating interests in machine learning and computer vision. Here is a copy of my CV.


I mostly do math research. Here’s my listing on MathSciNet if you can access it. Here’s my listing on the arXiv, where I put all of my math papers (with a few exceptions from long ago).

Every once in a while, I do something else. Here are my non-math articles. I try to keep this up to date, but it is possible I will fail.

  2. Max Lieblich, June Spector, Kevin McQuade, Margaret Hughes, Stephen Bao, Kinect Calculation of Lifting-Related Back Injury RiskIEEE EMBC Poster, 2014

This year I’m teaching the graduate algebraic geometry sequence.
