I'm a Ph.D candidate in the Mathematics department at the University of Michigan. I graduated from the University of Chicago with a B.S. in Mathematics in 2010. My research interests are in number theory and arithmetic geometry, in particular modular curves, Hilbert modular surfaces and the associated forms, regulators and L-functions. My advisor is Kartik Prasanna.


While at Michigan I've taught:
Multivariable Calculus (215)
Calculus II (116)
Calculus I (115)
Precalculus (105)
I also taught at the PROMYS program at Boston University in the summer of 2010, and at the YSP and SESAME programs at the University of Chicago in 2009 and 2007 respectively.


Some really old papers are here.

The Great Dynasty

I came across the following quote in chapter 3 of Godemont's notes on Jacquet-Langlands' theory:

"In Weil's Basic Number Theory and in Jacquet and Langlands they write v instead of g. We prefer
our g's; they remind us of the Great Dynasty-- Gauss, Jacobi, Dirichlet, Riemann, Dedekind, Kronecker,
Hilbert, Minkowski, Hecke, Artin, Hasse, etc. ...--Salvation through Zahlentheorie."
