QVNTS and unQVNTS seminar pages.

currently teaching:
    Math 52 (Fundamentals of Mathematics)

office hours:
    Lord House, 207B, Friday 12PM-2PM (after my second section of MATH52)

about me:
I am currently a Visiting 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. This means I work a lot with jet spaces, strange operations on rings, and the Frobenius endomorphisms (all at once!).  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.

Here is a picture of me:

I am currently organizing a conference on Witt Vectors, Deformations and Absolute Geometry.
