### About

I'm a research scientist working with

the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation at Harvard.
The main person I work under is

Noam Elkies. I did my PhD with

Dorian Goldfeld.
I'm interested in analytic number theory, computational number theory, and arithmetic statistics.

Here is my **CV**.
