News (see also past news)

The Clay Mathematics Institute called to say that I was PROBABLY going to receive a Millennium Prize, but that I would have to prove the Riemann Hypothesis and agree to a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway! (26 Nov 17)

The Simons Foundation has released a new video about the BEAM program. BEAM will be expanding from New York to Los Angeles in 2018. (14 Nov 17)

The Simons Foundation has announced a Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation. This includes some job openings at Boston University, Brown/ICERM, Dartmouth, Harvard, and MIT. (14 Jul 17; updated 8 Aug 17, 25 Aug 17, 22 Sep 17)

This is me looking puzzled at the National Puzzlers' League convention in Boston. (8 Jul 17)

Fast facts (see also my CV)

Teaching (see also my past courses):

Research areas: number theory, arithmetic algebraic geometry. Specialties: p-adic analytic methods in arithmetic geometry, p-adic Hodge theory, p-adic differential equations, algorithms in arithmetic geometry, interactions between arithmetic geometry and computer science.

Editorial boards: Algebra and Number Theory, Nagoya Mathematical Journal. Also the L-Functions and Modular Forms Database.

Boards of directors: Art of Problem Solving Initiative (this includes governance of BEAM: Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics), Pro Mathematica Arte (this includes governance of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education).

Current grants: NSF grant DMS-1501214 (sole PI); NSF RTG grant DMS-1502651 (co-PI). I am also an advisory board member for the UTMOST Project (concerning open-source mathematics textbooks) and the Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry (which includes the Arizona Winter School), and an associated scientist of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation.

Other: I am an active user and developer of the Sage open-source computer algebra system, both as a standalone application and via the CoCalc (formerly SageMathCloud) web portal. I am a curator for MathMeetings, from which my conference list in arithmetic geometry is now derived. While I do maintain the Putnam Archive, I am not the coordinator for the Putnam exam at UCSD; that would be Daniel Kane.
