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.
(If these words don't mean anything to you, then 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.)
