My research is in the general area of Number Theory. I obtained my Ph.D. in 2009 at the University of Texas at Austin under the direction of Fernando Rodriguez-Villegas, and the title of my thesis was “Hypergeometric Functions in Arithmetic Geometry.” I am working on several projects at the moment, in the theory of formal multizeta values, arithmetic dynamics, and arithmetic mirror symmetry.

Here is the latest version of my CV .
