Curriculum Vitae

I am a Hildebrandt Assistant Professor at University of Michigan until June 2018, working with Andrew Snowden. In 2014-2015, I was an NSERC postdoctoral fellow at McGill University and Centre de Recherches Mathématiques under the supervision of Henri Darmon and Andrew Granville, participating in the thematic year in number theory. I received my PhD in 2014 at MIT under Bjorn Poonen.
