At the moment, I am generally unable to accept requests to review manuscripts or grant proposals, or to write post-tenure recommendation letters.

During the 2018-19 academic year, I will be a Visiting Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. I plan to return to UCSD for the fall 2019 quarter.

News (see also past news)

Registration is open for the 2019 Arizona Winter School on the topic "Topology and Arithmetic". Due to the late opening of registration, the deadline to apply for funding has been pushed back to November 21; general registration closes December 9. (15 Oct 18)

Join the Society of p-adicts! Thanks to David Roe, the T-shirt can now be ordered online using this link. (20 Aug 18)

The Annales Henri Lebesgue, a new online-only, fully cost-free (for both authors and readers) generalist mathematics journal with a strong editorial board, is now accepting submissions. (31 May 18)

I finally got around to switching this web site over to HTTPS. This apparently created some issues with Safari; this should now be fixed. (20 May 18; updated 6 Jun 18)

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)

Fast facts (see also my CV)

Teaching (see also my past courses): none during 2018-2019. My teaching during 2017-2018 was as follows:

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

Editorial boards: Algebra and Number Theory, Nagoya Mathematical Journal. Also the L-Functions and Modular Forms Database.

Boards of directors: Art of Problem Solving Initiative (this includes governance of BEAM: Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics), Pro Mathematica Arte (this includes governance of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education).

Current grants NSF grant DMS-1501214 (sole PI); NSF grant DMS-1802161 (sole PI); NSF RTG grant DMS-1502651 (co-PI). I am also an advisory board member for the UTMOST Project (concerning open-source mathematics textbooks), an advisory board member for 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, the UCSD Putnam coordinator is Daniel Kane.
