## Information

I am a fourth-year graduate student in mathematics at Tufts University working under the supervision of Robert Lemke Oliver. Broadly speaking, my interests include number theory, arithmetic statistics, and arithmetic geometry. I graduated from Brown in 2017 and earned my Master's from Tufts in 2019. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@tufts.edu.

Starting in the spring semester of 2021, I am also an adjunct faculty member at Salve Regina University.

Here is my CV.

## Research

I am mainly interested in number theory and arithmetic statistics. Here are my papers/preprints:

*Comparing the Density of D*_{4 }*and S*_{4 }*Extensions of Number Fields*, with Matt Friedrichsen (ArXiv, accepted by Proc. AMS)*Enumerating**D*_{4 }*Quartics and a Galois Group Bias Over Function Fields*(ArXiv, submitted)

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:

D.N. Rodrigues, P. Rescigno, D. Liu, et al.

*Immunogenomic analyses associate immunological alterations with mismatch repair defects in prostate cancer*. The Journal of Clinical Oncology (2019)D. Miao, P. Rescigno, D. Liu, et al.

*Genomic correlates of response to immune checkpoint blockade in microsatellite-stable solid tumors*. Nature Genetics (2018)D. Liu, P. Abbosh, D. Keliher, et al.

*Mutational patterns in chemotherapy resistant muscle-invasive bladder cancer*. Nature Communications (2017)
