I am presently a limited term assistant professor at the University of Georgia working with Jiuya Wang and with the Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory Group. Broadly speaking, my interests include number theory and arithmetic statistics. I received my PhD in mathematics from Tufts University where I was supervised by Robert Lemke Oliver.
I can be reached at mylastname(at)uga(dot)edu. Here is my CV.
I am mainly interested in number theory and arithmetic statistics, particularly questions related to elliptic curves, Selmer groups, and counting number fields. I am also interested in prime number races, special values of L-functions, effective estimates, and some related topics in combinatorics.
The following are my papers and preprints. I have linked to journal versions where possible; preprints of all of papers can be found on arXiv.
Comparing the Density of D4 and S4 Extensions of Number Fields, with Matt Friedrichsen
Enumerating D4 Quartics and a Galois Group Bias Over Function Fields
Optimal Transport for Some Symmetric Multidimensional Partitions, with Daniel Adu
Rank Growth of Elliptic Curves in S4 and A4 Extensions of the Rationals
On the constants in Mertens' theorems for primes in arithmetic progressions, with Ethan S. Lee

Dominant Galois Groups for Large Degree Extensions, with Jiuya Wang
I have also worked in computational genomics. The papers and abstracts below are the result of collaboration with Eli Van Allen, David Liu, and others at the Dana-Farber Cancer Insitute. My contributions primarily dealt with applications of non-negative matrix factorization to problems about mutational signatures. Check out related work from the Van Allen Lab. Though this is not my current research focus, I am very interested in revisiting some of these ideas with topological methods. Research from this work can be found at PubMed or on Google Scholar.
