Research Description

Much of my research has been in harmonic analysis.  My focus has been on norm inequalities involving certain classes of functions (or sequences) and their Fourier transforms and coefficients (or corresponding trigonometric polynomials).  The general monotone functions and sequences are particular classes of interest.  More recently my work has been in functions of one variable; specifically, generalizing functions of bounded variation, and am in the process of developing some interesting applications for such functions.
