# Griffin Wang

I am a third-year PhD student at University of Chicago. My research interest lies in algebraic geometry and representation theory, with an eye towards number theory. My advisor is Prof. Ngô, Bảo Châu.

## Personal

This is my CV.

I’m a casual gamer, and math is a game with endless possibilities and expansion packs. Aside from math, other games I enjoy(ed) include the Pokémon series, The Legend of Zelda BotW, Super ~~Mario~~Koopa Odyssey, ~~Mario~~Koopa Kart series, (RIP) HoMM series, and so on. I delivered a lecture about competitive Pokémon battle at the University of Chicago during my teaching training.

My English name Griffin comes from the mythological creature griffin.

## Academics

I was admitted to candidacy in 2017-2018 academic year. My topic is a summary of the Godement-Jacquet theory. A slightly too long proposal can be found here.

I am currently working on problems related to fundamental lemmas.

I organized a reading seminar about algebraic groups in Spring 2018.

## Teaching

I TA-ed for the MATH 16110/16210/16310 (Honor Calculus IBL) series in the 2017–2018 academic year.

I am teaching MATH 15100/40 (Calculus I) on Fall 2018.

## Notes

A tiny 3-page note I recorded during Prof. Ngô’s seminar explaining the most basic part of the Hitchin fibrations, which I find both concise and conceptually satisfying.

(Possibly forever) unfinished notes for V. Ginzburg’s class Geometric Satake in Spring 2018.

## Misc

- I also conduct some casual research in knot theory, during which I found a broken link on Jon DeWitt’s page.
