### About:

I am a sixth year graduate student at the University of Chicago
and a student of

Ngô Bảo Châu.
Interested broadly in the geometry of the Hitchin fibration and its many manifestations in
representation theory and number theory. Currently studying Hitchin systems associated to
symmetric pairs, with applications to relative trace formulae and duality of branes on the
Hitchin moduli space.

My Research Statement can be found
