I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Mathematics at Caltech. My advisor is Elena Mantovan.

My research interests include Shimura varieties, the Langlands program, arithmetic geometry, and number theoretic cryptography.

Here is my CV (updated January 2019).


Papers

On the Hecke Orbit Conjecture for PEL type Shimura varieties. In preparation.

Abstract: For a prime p, the Hecke orbit conjecture asserts that every prime-to-p Hecke orbit in a PEL type Shimura variety is dense in the central leaf containing it. We prove that the conjecture holds for certain Newton polygon strata under assumptions on the splitting behavior of p.
