About me:

Hi there! I'm a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia. I specialize in number theory and arithmetic geometry

Future Appointments:

From September 2022 to August 2023, I will be a Simons postdoctoral fellow at Centre de recherches mathématiques - Université de Montréal (CRM).

Starting August 2023, I will be an assistant professor (tenure track) at the Chennai Mathematical Institute, India.

Education/Positions held:

2010-2013: Bsc in Math and Computer science (Chennai Math. Inst.)

2013-2015: Masters in Math (Chennai Math. Inst.)

2015-2020: PhD in Math (Cornell University)

supervisor: Ravi Ramakrishna

2020-present: postdoctoral researcher (University of British Columbia)

Research interests:

I'm interested in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. My primary research interest is in Iwasawa theory, Galois representations and L-functions. I use techniques in Galois cohomology, algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry and analytic number theory.


Recently, I have studied questions at the intersection of arithmetic statistics and Iwasawa theory. Some of my research is significantly informed by computation.


As a secondary interest, I also study questions in arithmetic geometry.


For further details, see my research statement research statement (last updated Nov 2021).

Here is a link to my papers on the arxiv.

Organization this semester:

This semester, I'm co-organizing the UBC Number Theory Seminar. Please use this link to register.

 I'm also organizing the Iwasawa theory Virtual Seminar.


At this time, I'm supervising a small number of undergraduate research projects. The projects that interest me range from a wide variety of topics in number theory. These projects are designed to be easily accessible to undergraduates with a modest background in Galois theory and algebraic number theory.
