I am a mathematician. My primary research interest is in the analytic aspects of number theory and automorphic forms. I have been working toward establishing new results on automorphic L-functions, especially concerning subconvexity and the nonvanishing of L-functions at the center of the critical strip. I am interested in different approaches to proving average results on values of L-functions, for example in the traditional way using the approximate functional equation and in more recent ones using the relative trace formula and multiple Dirichlet series.
