Since Fall 2022, I am a limited term assistant professor at the University of Georgia working in the Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory Group.  Broadly speaking, my interests include number theory, arithmetic statistics, and arithmetic geometry. 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. Here are my papers/preprints:

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.  Here are the highlights:

Other Stuff

For many years I organized the Tufts University Directed Reading Program (DRP). In Fall 2022, I participated in the Spelman-Morehouse DRP. 

From Spring 2019 to Fall 2021, I organized  the Tufts Math Graduate Student Seminar, which is now run by J.C. Wang
