My research has benefited from working with some amazing list of collaborators. Some are listed here. Following the link from their names shows what they have done with me.  As appropriate, I have added the link to their most recent website and as much as I can remember to update, where they are. You can also see a list of my Ph.D. students and my academic genealogy at the Math Geneology Project site.
