fall 2017 teaching: topics in arithmetic geometry (math 724; an introduction to abelian varieties)
i am currently the organizer for the jhu number theory seminar
together with thomas haines, i am a co-organizer for the jhu-umd algebra and number theory day
my research is in arithmetic and algebraic geometry, and more specifically in shimura varieties and classification problems related to abelian varieties, p-divisible groups, and formal lie groups
Orthogonal Shimura varieties of PEL type and local models, in preparation.

these contain some minor errors introduced by yours truly, but for now the source
