My PhD in Mathematics is from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
My dissertation advisor was Nigel Boston

In July-August of 2009 and in August of 2010 I visited MPIM. I was able to enjoy Bonn in part thanks to the courage and wisdom of Harry Crosby, Lead Navigator for the 100th Bomb Group (Heavy) who canceled the bombing on 12 August 1943. Both the photo and and excerpt have been taken from this book. I thank Lowell Getz for supplying me with them.

    I am amazed at the genius of Donald Knuth who, among many other things, has made typesetting a joy. Many resources are available if one would like to learn LaTeX. Here's a good one, for example.
