My Info

Hi. I'm a Van Vleck visiting assistant professor/RTG postdoc here at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Next year, I'll be a tenure-track assistant professor at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa! My research interests lie in number theory with particular emphasis on automorphic Galois representations, arithmetic statistics, and computational aspects. I did my Ph.D. at Princeton with Andrew Wiles and my B.Sc. is from McGill University in their Joint Honours Mathematics and Physics program. I was also a postdoc at Boston University for a couple of years.

On the non-academic side, I enjoy the usual things in life (music, reading, chillin' with my friends, long walks on the beach, and such...). I (used to) usually play quite a bit of soccer, but also enjoy football, squash, and hockey (I am Canadian, did I mention that?). De plus, je suis complètement bilingue!
