# Griffin Wang

I am a second-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 like gaming, with MATH being my personal favorite among all I ever played,
partially due to the fact I suck at video games. Aside from MATH, other games
I enjoy(ed) include the Pokémon series, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild,
Super Koopa Odyssey, Koopa Kart series (Mario is a loser!),
Heroes of Might and Magic series (so sad it died),
and so on.
I even delivered a lecture about competitive Pokémon battle at the University
of Chicago during my teaching training.

My English name Griffin comes from my fondness for the mythological creature griffin.

## Academic

I passed the topic exam in Fall 2017. The 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. Apparently no
significant progress has been made yet.

I am the organizer of 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.

Future courses taught by me will appear here.

## Course and Seminar Notes

Notes for V. Ginzburg's class Geometric Satake in Spring 2018.

## Misc. Fun

I was an engineering student before I came to UChicago. I wrote a small note
(not finished yet) explaining a math question I had by the time.

It seems I also conduct some casual research in knot theory, during which I found a broken LINK on Jon DeWitt's page.
