My main research interest is in arithmetic geometry. I am currently working on a project to understand how powerful classical Chabauty's method is when combined with restriction of scalars and descent techniques. Kim's nonabelian Chabauty also fascinates me, and I would like to understand how to use restriction of scalars to push that method further. The statistics of Selmer groups also fascinate me, whether in quadratic twist families or families of hyperelliptic/superelliptic curves. I have also done some work on sphere packing and fast computation of zeta functions while in graduate school. My papers are on my research page.
Before MIT, I studied mathematics at Cambridge supported by the Churchill Scholarship. I completed my undergraduate studies in mathematics and computer science at the University of Michigan supported by the Sidney J. and Irene Shipman Scholarship.
