I am an Instructor at Princeton University. Previously, I was an Associate Research Scholar at Princeton,
and before that, I was a Hedrick Assistant Professor at UCLA.

My research is partially supported by NSF grant DMS-1801385.

Here is my CV (as of September 2018).

Research Interests: Number Theory and Arithmetic Geometry.
More specifically: p-adic L-functions, Euler systems and Iwasawa theory.
