Daniel Rayor Hast
(they/them)
I am a postdoc with the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Boston University. I'm currently working in arithmetic geometry, with a focus on padic approaches to rational points on varieties, as well as postquantum cryptography.
