Simran Khunger

I am a mathematics Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I am interested in the Langlands program and representation theory.

Research Areas

    These days, I'm thinking about aspects of automorphic forms, especially on the analytic side. I'm also interested in refinements of the local Langlands conjecture. My research has been in analytic number theory and partition theory.

Current Involvement
  • I am on the executive board for UM's AWM chapter. I liaise with the department to invite diverse speakers for our colloquium. Have an idea for a speaker for UM's colloquium? Drop me an email!
  • I help run and mentor for UM's DRP program.
  • In 2023-24, I am organizing a student number theory reading seminar on automorphic representations and related topics.
