Diophantine equations.
Here is a link to my papers on the arxiv.
Organization:

During the academic year 20212022, I coorganized the UBC Number Theory Seminar.

During spring 2022, I organized the Iwasawa theory Virtual Seminar.

I am coorganizing the AMS special session in Iwasawa theory (Oct 1&2, University of Amherst).
Supervision:
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. The goal is prove results that are of interest to experts, for which the techniques can be learnt within a few months. These projects are not always guaranteed to immediately lead to interesting papers, but at least get the ball rolling.
