My primary interests are in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. In particular, I am interested in congruences between special values of L-functions and their relation to special cycles on modular varieties. I am also interested in cryptography, particularly in lattice-based protocols arising from constructions in number theory.

Expository Writing

I wrote some notes on canonical lifts of elliptic curves and their role in the Gross-Zagier formula for a talk I gave in the Gross-Zagier Seminar.

I taught a mini-course on "Galois representations and their deformations" in 2016. I will eventually finish writing up notes that will appear here.

I was the organizer for the Student Arithmetic Seminar from 2013-2017. Feel free to contact me if you would like to be added to the mailing list or to give a talk.

I also organized a seminar on Borcherds products with Charlotte Chan during the Winter 2016 semester.
