Hello and welcome! I am a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, working with Jessica Fintzen. In July I finished my PhD at the University of Michigan; my advisor was Tasho Kaletha. Before coming to Michigan, I went to college at Brown University.

My research focuses on real and p-adic reductive groups, their representation theory, and connections to the Langlands program. I have recently been studying the Plancherel measure and the Galois representations whose local factors are conjectured to express it. Outside of this research program, I am pretty open-minded mathematically and enjoy hearing what other people are working on.

For the non-specialists: this beautiful picture, drawn by Tetsushi Ito, gives a good sense of the research program in my field. (Thanks to Jialiang Zou for bringing it to my attention!)

My last name (Schwein) is pronounced "shween"; it rhymes with "clean", contrary to the German pronunciation.
