News (see also past news)

I've just made web-public the stream on conference announcements from the UC San Diego number theory group Zulip server. (31 Jan 24)

The next Southern California Number Theory Day will take place Saturday, February 24 at UC San Diego. (25 Jan 24)

Fast facts (see also my CV)

Teaching for 2023-2024: None. I will be visiting IAS for most of the year, participating in the special year on p-adic geometry. I will continue to hold office hours for PhD students mostly over Zoom; email me to schedule.

Teaching for 2024-2025: To be decided (soon).

See also my past courses.

Research areas: number theory, arithmetic algebraic geometry. Specialties: p-adic Hodge theory, p-adic/nonarchimedean analytic geometry, p-adic differential equations, algorithms in arithmetic geometry (particularly related to L-functions), interactions between arithmetic geometry and computer science (cryptography, coding theory, etc.). For more, see my questions of interest.

Editorial boards: Nagoya Mathematical Journal, L-Functions and Modular Forms Database. In addition, I am on the program committee for ANTS-XVI.


Current grants: NSF grant DMS-2053473 (sole PI); NSF RTG grant DMS-1502651 (co-PI); UC San Diego, Stefan E. Warschawski Chair; Simons Fellowship in Mathematics. I am also an advisory board member for the UTMOST Project (interactive open-source mathematics textbooks), the Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry (including the Arizona Winter School), and the PRiME REU; and an associated scientist of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation.

Professional societies: American Mathematical Society, Mathematical Association of America (life member), Association for Women in Mathematics, National Association of Mathematicians.

Software projects: I am an active user and developer of the SageMath open-source computer algebra system. I am a contributor to the LMFDB. Some of my other projects, including Math 157, can be found on GitHub.

Other websites: 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, Daniel Kane serves as the UCSD Putnam coordinator and teaches the Putnam seminar (Math 96).

Social justice: My work with the BEAM program seeks to create pathways to STEM careers for high-potential K-12 students from underserved backgrounds. I am a proud alum of the PCMI-IAS Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics led by the phenomenal Rochelle Gutiérrez. I am a mentor for CalBridge and Math Alliance. I identify as first-gen.
