Hi, my name is Xinyu Zhou. I am a PhD student at Boston University. My main interest is arithmetic geometry. Recently, I am more focusing on some problems in p-adic geometry and the geometry of moduli spaces of shtukas.

Here are some notes I wrote. Intersection Theory. These notes give introductions to Chern classes and Segre classes on schemes. Brauer-Manin Obstructions. This is the note for the STAGE talk at MIT on the étale Brauer obstructions and insufficiencies. Formal Vanishing Cycles. These are the notes for my talk at a learning seminar on Scholze's proof of Local Langlands for \(GL_n\). I discussed some basic properties of formal vanishing cycles and deformation spaces of divisible modules. Verdier duality. Introduction to Verdier duality Ramanujan-Petersson Conjecture--Part 1. An introduction to the Ramanujan-Petersson conjecture.
