Assistant Professor

Michigan State University

Wells Hall D304

I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the mathematics department at Michigan State University. Previously, I have been a Member of the Institute for Advanced Study, and an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at UCLA. I received my PhD from the University of Chicago in 2015. My research is partially funded by NSF grant DMS-1901867. My CV is available here.

My research is in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. I use methods from modular forms and Galois deformation theory to study special values of L-functions and Iwasawa theory. See my research page for publications and preprints.
