I am a third year Ph.D student. I work with David Speyer, doing algebraic geometry and algebraic combinatorics. (That said, I have a soft spot for number theory, especially the more AG-related areas.) I graduated from Williams College with a bachelors in mathematics, and spent Fall 2009 in Hungary at the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program, which I highly recommend.

I am primarily interested in algebraic geometry and number theory.
Lately I've also been enjoying algebraic combinatorics. For example,
I am also interested in other areas of algebra and geometry. I did research on completions of local rings in the commutative algebra group at SMALL in 2009 with Susan Loepp, and a friend and I are trying to figure out some moduli spaces of polygons in our spare time.

Personal:I am Canadian. More specifically, I am from Montreal. If you're a Williams student thinking about applying to math grad schools, feel free to get in touch! I can't guarantee to be helpful, but I can guarantee to be more helpful than either of these guys.

I wrote up my solutions to the May 2012 Analysis QR Exam, since there are currently no solutions to any analysis quals... that made it hard to study! Download here.
