Research Interests:

·       Primary: foundations of quantum theory

·       Secondary (and mostly as related to the above): functional analysis, ordered sets and lattices, quantum information theory, quantum logic and probability theory, general topology.

I am also a fan of: category theory, measure theory, modal logic, operator algebras, and set theory. (I have offered, or can offer, reading courses in any of the above. Interested students should ask!)

Biographical Sketch: I was raised in western Massachusetts, and attended Oberlin College (BA in mathematics, 1983) and the University of Massachusetts (Ph.D. in mathematics, 1989).  Prior to joining the faculty at Susquehanna, I held positions at the University of New Hampshire, the University of Pittsburgh/Johnstown, and Juniata College. My wife, Mary Hague, formerly a professor of Government at Juniata, has more recently been a visiting professor of environmental studies at Bucknell University. We have one son, Griffin, age 18.
