I am a University Lecturer in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge.
I am interested in arithmetic geometry and representation theory, in particular on problems related to the mod p geometry of Shimura varieties.

Other writings

Model categories and the cotangent complex My Harvard minor thesis. It's an exposition of the construction of the cotangent complex and some applications to characterizing complete intersections and smooth morphisms of schemes.

Notes from a course on Complex Multiplication of elliptic curves that I taught with Yihang Zhu at Harvard in Fall 2014.
