Research Interests

My research area is Operator Theory, including composition operators, Teoplitz operators, Complex Analysis, Functional Analysis, and Operator Algebras. The study of composition and Toeplitz operators on spaces of analytic function lies in the intersection of Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, Functional analysis, and operator algebras. Both composition and Teoplitz operators are induced by underlying functions, the properties of these operators are closely tied to the properties of the associated maps.

A long term goal of my research on weighted composition operators $W_{\psi, \varphi}$ is to classify membership in a given operator-class (bounded, compact, Hilbert-Schmidt, Schatten, Normal, Subnormal, etc.) in terms of the geometric and analytic properties of the induce weight maps $\varphi$ and $\psi$, to relate the spectrum and essential spectrum of algebraic combinations of these operators to the properties of the underlying maps $\varphi$ and $\psi$, and to determine the structures and K-theory of the unital $C^{*}$-algebras generated by the collection of these operators.
