I am a tenure track assistant professor in the Mathematics Department at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I am the PI on National Science Foundation Grant DMS-1559609 from 2015 through 2018.  I was the PI on National Science Foundation Grant DMS-1249384 from 2012 through 2015.


My research area is number theory.  In particular, I am interested in automorphic forms, L-functions, and arithmetic geometry.  My current research focuses primarily on p-adic properties of automorphic forms and L-functions.  I am currently working on problems concerning L-functions and automorphic forms on unitary groups.


Prior to joining the Mathematics Department at UNC, I was a Boas Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Northwestern University.  My Ph.D. is from the University of Michigan.  During my last year of graduate school, I was a Visiting Student Research Collaborator at Princeton University.  During most of the two years before that, I was a Visiting Scholar at Columbia University.  I received an A.B. in Mathematics from Princeton University.
