Due to UCSD's social distancing measures, I will not be on campus during the spring quarter. However, I plan to have online office hours on Monday afternoons; email me to schedule an appointment. (17 Mar 20)

The 2021 Arizona Winter School will be held March 6-10, 2021 on the topic of "Modular forms beyond GL_2". The main speakers will be Ellen Eischen, Wee Teck Gan, Aaron Pollack, and Zhiwei Yun; the Clay Lecturer will be Benedict Gross. In addition, Edray Goins is organizing an AWS Undergraduate Bootcamp aimed at promoting advanced studies in number theory to undergraduates from underrepresented minorities. (11 Mar 20)

Here is the home page for the reading group on Abelian and Nonabelian Chabauty (UCSD, fall 2019/winter 2020). (2 Oct 19)

Here is the reading rack for the reading group on Geometric Aspects of the Langlands Correspondence (IAS, spring 2019). (21 Jan 19)

Join the Society of p-adicts! Thanks to David Roe, the T-shirt can now be ordered online using this link. (20 Aug 18)

Fast facts (see also my CV)

Current teaching (see also my past courses):

Office hours: through spring 2020, I will be conducting all office hours remotely, mostly on Monday afternoons. Email me to set up an appointment.

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: Nagoya Mathematical Journal, 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-1802161 (sole PI); NSF RTG grant DMS-1502651 (co-PI). I am also an advisory board member for the UTMOST Project (interactive open-source mathematics textbooks), an advisory board member for the Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry (including 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. I maintain the Putnam Archive within this website; however, the UCSD Putnam coordinator is Daniel Kane.
