I am interested in number theory. In particular, I am interested in the Langlands program related theories. More specifically, local Langlands mostly for now.

Personal Interest

Outside of math, I am interested in reading, swimming, hiking, planting, watercolor painting (especially about plants), cooking, sewing.

I am also particularly interested in hearing interesting ko-ans in Buddhism, you can definitely email me with the reference if you see a good one, thank you.
