Some other courses I taught at CWRU in the not-too-distant past

And here are some graduate courses taught at Sorbonne University in Paris Fall 2017 Spring 2020

I will be on a sabbatical leave during 2019-20, but I will be in residence on the CWRU campus for part of the year.
At other times, I will be - among others - in Paris, France or
Sopot and Gdansk Poland. * (Obviously, these plans got affected by COVID-19.) *

In the fall of 2017 I will be co-organizing a trimester on Analysis In Quantum Information Theory at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris. Here is a YouTube trailer of the program. I will be based at the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu-Paris Rive Gauche from July 2017 through July 2018.

I will be on a sabbatical leave for 2013-14. In particular, in the fall of 2013 I will be in Cambridge, U.K., participating in the programme Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Information at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences. I will be traveling intermittently in the winter, spring and summer of 2014. I will be in residence at CWRU starting in the Fall of 2014.

In August 2010, I am on the CWRU campus, back from the
Equipe d'Analyse Fonctionnelle
at the
Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France.
However, I will be traveling extensively in the fall, participating in
the program
on Asymptotic Geometric Analysis at the
Fields Institute in Toronto and
in the
semester on Quantum Information Theory at the
Institut Mittag-Leffler in Djursholm, Sweden.

Since January 2009 I am
Kerr Professor of Mathematics.

Since June 2007 I have been involved in the NSF Focused Research Group project:
Fourier analytic and probabilistic methods in geometric
functional analysis and convexity. In addition to CWRU, the FRG project
involves Kent State University, University of Michigan and University of Missouri.
The project provides numerous research opportunities, particularly for graduate
students and postdocs.
A major FRG-related event was an
international conference
on "Perspectives in High Dimensions," which took place in Cleveland from August 1 to August 7, 2010.
[The project ended on May 31, 2012.]

In August 2006 I took part in the International
Congress of Mathematicians in Madrid, Spain. Here are the slides
from my lecture on *Convexity, Complexity, and High Dimensions* and the related
ICM-2006 Proceedings article.

Earlier in 2006, I was involved in the
trimester on Phenomena in High Dimensions at
the Institut Henri Poincare,
where I taught
this course.
And here is another event at IHP in 2007.

And here are my daughters, Martina and Natalie (as seen by a Ukrainian artist in Kraków in 1997) and Emily (testing a certain body of water in 2005).
