For technical reasons, my conference directory has moved to a new URL. The navigation bar has been updated. (19 Dec 22)

During winter 2023, Math 157 will be taught by my student JJ Garzella; here is the course website. (23 Nov 22)

Preregistration is open for the events of the thematic semester in arithmetic statistics at CIRM (Luminy) in February-March 2023. (19 Oct 22)

The Arizona Winter School is now able to accept donations! Please help to perpetuate one of the oldest, most successful instructional conferences in mathematics. (4 Mar 22)

Fast facts (see also my CV)

Teaching for 2022-2023:

Advance notice: I will not be teaching during 2023-24 either, visiting IAS for most of the year.

See also my past courses.

Office hours for winter 2022: I will be on sabbatical during winter 2022; however, I will continue to hold remote office hours on Mondays by appointment (primarily for PhD students).

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.

Boards of directors: Art of Problem Solving Initiative (this includes governance of Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics), board Chair for Pro Mathematica Arte (this includes governance of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education). I am also the Chair of the steering committee for the Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium conference series. As of February 2021, I will be serving a three-year term on the Council of the American Mathematical Society and the AMS Committee on Publications (co-chairing the latter during 2022).

Current grants: NSF grant DMS-2053473 (sole PI); 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), 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, 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 Math Alliance mentor. I self-identify as first-gen.
