I am a third year PhD student in mathematics at the University of Chicago; my advisor is Matt Emerton. I am interested in arithmetic and algebraic geometry and number theory. My current focus is on p-adic automorphic forms.

In July 2012 I received a Joint Master Degree from Leiden University and Universite Paris-Sud 11 through the ALGANT integrated masters course. I wrote my thesis with Bas Edixhoven, entitled "Higher genus counterexamples to relative Manin-Mumford." You can find it here.
