**Steve Lester**

### About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University for the 2014-2015 academic year
working under the supervision of Prof. Zeev Rudnick.
Next fall I will be moving to KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

In May 2013, I completed a PhD at the University of Rochester under the guidance of
Prof. Steven Gonek.

Research interests: analytic number theory, especially L-functions, multiplicative functions, classical automorphic forms;
mathematical physics, epsecially quantum chaos
