My research is in algorithmic number theory and arithmetic geometry. My work is supported by the Luce Foundation, the National Science Foundation and the Simons Foundation.

I am part of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation. The collaboration currently has a number of open positions. Here is the Mathjobs listing for the Boston University position.

There are currently four Ph.D. students working with me.
