I have offered several courses during the last few years:

Here is a summary of my current research:

I am currently interested in numerical linear algebra for structured matrices. Specifically, I am trying to find a fast way to compute the singular values of Toeplitz matrices. I hope that the study of algebras related to Lie algebras will lead to a solution of this problem.

You can electronically access some of my recent reports and recent talks.
