I’m now a senior research scientist at ICERM and Brown University. I’m supported by the Simon’s Collaboration on arithmetic geometry, number theory, and computation.

I used to be a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Warwick. I received my PhD after studying with Jeff Hoffstein at Brown University. I research topics related to analytic number theory. My interests include $L$-functions, automorphic forms, metaplectic forms, Multiple Dirichlet Series, arithmetic geometry, and related topics.

On the side, I also enjoy looking into topics related to the mean value theorem of calculus. (Yes, really. It’s for fun, but it turns out that a lot of nice depth lurks behind some simple questions).
