During Fall 2014 I am a postdoc at MSRI, Berkeley.

I am a CRM postdoctoral fellow. Before that I was a PhD student at Columbia (advisor Shou-Wu Zhang).

Research

I am interested in L-functions and the arithmetic of algebraic varieties.

(What are those things? You could find a more leisurely description of the sort of things that I do for a living in the Afterword to my thesis, which I wrote for friends and family and the average person who went to high school. My thesis was a first version of paper number 1 below.)

Papers and preprints

1. p-adic Heights of Heegner points on Shimura curves, preprint pdf

(This paper proves a p-adic Gross-Zagier formula over totally real fields. Revised version dealing with the ordinary case. The non-ordinary modifications, which partly rely on forthcoming work of others, will be given in a separate paper.)

Teaching

Fall 2013: Calculus I (Math 140)

Notes on higher order approximations

A graphing problem with solutions.

Sample final: there is a sample final with solutions posted on Mycourses. Please do it and do problems from the book similar to those you have trouble with.

Office hours in December: Monday Dec. 2, 4-5 pm; Tuesday Dec. 3, 1.30-2.30 pm; Monday Dec. 9, 4-5 pm. Or by appointment, or you can also ask questions by email. You are highly encouraged to come.
