## About

I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in the UCLA math department. I received my PhD from the University of Chicago, where my advisor was Kazuya Kato.

I am applying for tenure-track positions in Fall 2017. Here is my CV.

Here is a video of a lecture I gave at the *New Directions in Iwasawa Theory* workshop at BIRS in Banff, Alberta.

## Research

I am interested in number theory and arithmetic geometry.

## Teaching

This year, I will be teaching ``Inquiry in numbers". This is an inquiry-based learning course I designed with Olga Turanova for the UCLA Honors Collegium. The course was selected in a university-wide competition for innovative teaching and learning.

For more information, see our course proposal.
