To my funded colleagues: if you use Sage as much as (or more than) I do, I propose that you do what I did: get a professional membership to SageMathCloud as a way to promote further Sage development. (24 Apr 16)

The "Conferences" link at left has been updated. Instead of pointing to my old conference wiki, it now points to my front end to the MathMeetings database. MathMeetings can accommodate conference listings while allowing filtering by arXiv subject codes; for example, my front end filters for algebraic geometry and/or number theory. Also, entries can be added by any user (and then updated), reducing moderator bottleneck. I am planning to stop maintaining the conference wiki (except for rumors) by the end of 2016. (16 Mar 16; modified 9 Apr 16)

The current (online) issue of The Atlantic features an article which, among other things, describes the BEAM: Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics program run by the Art of Problem Solving Foundation, on whose board of directors I serve. (8 Feb 16)

There are no further postdoctoral positions in number theory available at UCSD for the 2016-17 academic year. (7 Feb 16)

Fast facts (see also my CV)

Teaching: during winter 2016: Math 203B (Algebraic Geometry). During spring 2016: Math 203C (Algebraic Geometry), Math 206A (Topics in Algebraic Geometry). See my past courses.

Research areas: number theory, arithmetic algebraic geometry. Specialties: p-adic analytic methods in arithmetic geometry, p-adic Hodge theory, algorithms in arithmetic geometry, interactions between arithmetic geometry and computer science.

Editorial activity: Algebra and Number Theory, Nagoya Mathematical Journal, L-Functions and Modular Forms Database. Note that I am no longer an editor for International Mathematics Research Notices.

Directorial activity: USA Mathematical Olympiad committee, Art of Problem Solving Foundation board of directors (this includes governance of BEAM: Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics), Pro Mathematica Arte board of directors (this includes governance of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education).

Current grants: NSF grant DMS-1501214. I recently completed a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Other: I am an active user and developer of the Sage open-source computer algebra system, both as a standalone application and via the SageMathCloud web portal.
