about me:
I am an Assistant Professor at UVM. Before that I was a post-doc of Ehud Hrushovski and before that a student of Alexandru Buium.

My research is at the interface of Number Theory, Algebraic Geometry and Model Theory. My main areas of focus are arithmetic deformation theory and the geometry of differential equations.  I'm particularly interested in constructions related to absolute geometry which have diophantine applications. I am open to talking to anyone about any type of math so if you want to talk about something please send me an email.

Here is a link to my vlog.
