J. L. Doob Research Assistant Professor
From January to December 2013, I visited the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. Academic parents:

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 2014 semester
