I am a second year PhD student in mathematics at the University of Chicago. I am interested in arithmetic and algebraic geometry, number theory, and isoperimetric problems. My advisor is Matt Emerton.

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.
