About Me

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. I am a member of the Number Theory group. I like representation theory, number theory, and algebraic geometry.

Before moving to Michigan, I was a CLE Moore Instructor and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT under Zhiwei Yun.

Before moving to MIT, I was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton under Christopher Skinner.

Before moving to Princeton, I was a graduate student at the Michigan under Kartik Prasanna.

Before graduate school, I was an undergraduate at Stanford. I spent a term at Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and a term at Oxford. I spent my summers as a counselor at PROMYS.

Before that, I spent my childhood in beautiful, sunny, cactus-y Tucson, Arizona.

Stripes! Oberwolfach 2016, 2019; Zoom teaching 2020.

My research is partially supported by NSF grant DMS-2101837 and a Sloan Research Fellowship. Thank you to the University of Michigan for this article on the latter!

Past Announcements

The deadline to apply for Arizona Winter School 2021 is December 7, 2020. The intended audience is undergraduates, but we welcome all interested participants. Accompanying lecture notes on my course on quadratic forms can be found here: Quadratic forms and the local-global principle.
