I am a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. I graduated with a Ph.D. in mathematics from UCLA in June 2016 under the advisement of Haruzo Hida. I am interested in algebraic number theory, especially Galois representations, modular forms, elliptic curves, and motives. You can find a copy of my CV here.

Math programs I have participated in:
*Program specifically for women
Other writings
Here are majors papers I've written for various degrees. I provide them mainly as samples for current students in similar programs.
- Images of Galois representations associated to p-adic families of modular forms, PhD dissertation at UCLA (June 2016); under the supervision of Haruzo Hida
- Two-Descent on the Jacobians of Hyperelliptic Curves, Part III essay at the University of Cambridge (April 2010); under the supervision of T. Fischer
- Properties of Class Groups of a Family of Cyclic Cubic Fields, thesis for MA at Bryn Mawr College (May 2009); under the supervision of H. G. Grundman
Resources for undergraduate and high school students
- Here is a list of lots of cool opportunities for undergraduates to study math. Disclaimer: I wrote this shortly after I was an undergrad and so some of the programs may no longer exist.
- When I was a PROMYS counselor, I gave a lecture for high school students about p-adics. Here are the notes for that.
- I gave a talk about absolute values and p-adic numbers to the high school group of the Los Angeles Math Circle. Here are the worksheets associated with that. This is related to the above set of notes.
