# Selected Publications

This list includes publications from my days in academia.

**Anything older than 2015 is excluded**. For a more complete list, I refer you to my Google Scholar page.
You may also find my MathSciNet page useful.
Most of the documents below have open access links to preprints that can alternatively be found by searching for me on the arXiv.
