    My mathematical genealogy

    My mathematical Great Grandfather was Oscar Zariski; check the Math Genealogy project for my (or anyone else's) complete genealogy.
    Here is a picture of my mathematical family, web pages of my advisor Eric Friedlander, some of my siblings: Chris Bendel, Christian Haesemeyer, Paul Sobaje, and my first experience in conference organizing in 2004.


    This was put together in "pre-social media" times. There are no plans to update these links
