Assistant Professor
Academic parents:

Previously, I was a J. L. Doob Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign.
From January to December 2013, as well as in March and April of 2014, I visited the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics.
Research interests
Analytic number theory, special functions, symbolic and numerical computation, enumerative combinatorics
More specifically, objects of particular interest include
 Apérylike numbers and their properties, particularly supercongruences,
 modular forms and arithmetic differential equations,
 hypergeometric functions, multiple polylogarithms and Mahler measure.
Fall 2015 semester
