My name is Michael Khoury, Jr, but most people call me “Cap” on account of the tweed deerstalker I always wear.
I am an assistant professor at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, where I teach all sorts of mathematics and study number theory and automorphic forms.
In addition to mathematics, my main hobbies are puzzles (proud member of the National Puzzler’s League) and games (card games, board games, everything from chess to Munchkin).
I live in Fenton, MI (which, in case you’re not familiar with the area, is located just north of nowhere) with my wonderful wife and two children.
This blog is intended for all the sundry stuff that doesn’t fit into any larger project. Currently there is one active project, the Not About Apples blog, also hosted here on wordpress.com, but the second project, Cap’s Whiteboard, is just over the horizon.
Whenever Not About Apples (and, later, other projects) are updated, that will be noted in a short post on this blog. That way, if you want to be up to date on everything I have to say, you only need to visit this one blog (or, better yet, subscribe to one RSS feed). On the other hand, it’s easy to imagine someone who’s only interesting in Not About Apples, and that sort of someone should subscribe to its RSS feed. Yeah, if for some reason you only care about things I say that aren’t part of a project, then you’re out of luck, but that would sure be a weird preference to have.
