#### Research Interests

My research is in Number Theory, especially the analytic theory of L-functions. The prototype of an L-function is the Riemann zeta-function, whose properties play an essential role in the study of prime numbers. L-functions arise in many arithmetic and geometric problems and understanding the basic properties of these L-functions, such as their value distribution and the location of their zeros, is often the key to solving these problems.
