## News (see also past news)

I will be co-organizing the 2019 Arizona Winter School on the topic of "Topology and Arithmetic." The dates will be March 2-6, 2019. The speakers will be Michael Hopkins, Jacob Lurie, Matthew Morrow, and Kirsten Wickelgren. (7 Mar 18)

I will be spending the 2018-19 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. In particular, I will not be teaching any courses at UCSD during that time. (15 Jan 18)

The BEAM (Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics) program is hiring for summer 2018! We are looking for counselors/teaching assistants and faculty for residential programs in New York and nonresidential programs in NYC and Los Angeles. See the BEAM web site for more information. (3 Jan 18)

You can hear me in conversation on the theme "The Discrete and Continuous" in the latest episode of the podcast SynTalk (Synthesis Talk). (25 Dec 17)

and the Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry (which includes the Arizona Winter School),
and an associated scientist of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation.

**Other**: I am an active user and developer of the Sage
open-source computer algebra system, both as a standalone application and via the CoCalc (formerly SageMathCloud) web portal.
I am a curator for MathMeetings,
from which my conference list in arithmetic geometry is now derived.
While I do maintain the Putnam Archive,
