About me

I am a third year graduate student in mathematics at the University of Chicago.
My advisor is Matthew Emerton, and my main interests are algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry.
Previously, I was an undergraduate and a Masters student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, studying under the supervision of Ehud de Shalit.
Here is a copy of my CV.

In autumn 2020, I am organizing the Modularity lifting student seminar in the University of Chicago.

Papers and Preprints

Lubin-Tate theory and overconvergent Hilbert modular forms of low weight.
To appear in Israel Journal of Mathematics.

(with Ehud de Shalit) Induction and restriction of (φ,Γ)-modules.
Appeared in Muenster J. Math., vol. 12 (2019), 215-237.

PhD Topic Proposal

Overconvergent modular forms and the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture

  • Other notes

    The following notes are expository or miscellaneous notes that I wrote in Tex at some point in time for some reason or another.
    These notes which are expository are usually much less comprehensive than other existing sources. Rather, the point was often to work out examples which are not so easy to find in the literature as a nonexpert.
    For the most part they are not carefully written, so use them at your own risk (but please do let me know if you find any mistakes).
  • Completed Cohomology
  • Basic Examples and Computations in p-adic Hodge Theory
  • Galois Deformations
  • Basic Deformation Theory
  • Lubin-Tate characters are crystalline
  • Structure of the Hecke algebra for GL2
  • Galois Extensions and Galois Cohomology
  • Relating fields of norms associated with a finite unramified extension
  • Kahler Differentials of Inseparable Field Extensions
  • A Cayley-Hamilton type theorem whose proof uses commutative algebra
