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
papers:
some old course notes for kottwitz's autumn 2003 course "topics in algebra" (an introductory course on algebraic stacks) pdf
these contain some minor errors introduced by yours truly, but for now the source file is lost.
