I'm currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune; previously at the Max Planck Institut für Mathematik (MPIM), Bonn. My work focuses on the interplay between trace formulae and L-functions in the theory of automorphic forms and representation theory. I also like to think about interactions between homotopy theory and number theory.

In progress

  1. From binary Hermitian forms to Bianchi modular forms, (with C. Karabulut and D. Zagier).

  2. Eisenstein cocycles over imaginary quadratic fields II: p-adic L-functions (with J. Flórez and C. Karabulut).

  3. The balanced Voronoi formula for GL(n,F), (with G. Cherubini).

  4. Eigenvarieties and L-packets on GSp(4), (with B. Balasubramanyam).


  1. Shifts of the sum of prime divisor function of Alladi and Erdős, (with S. Shekatkar). Submitted.

  2. Mock automorphic forms and the BPS index. Submitted.

  3. Heights of CM-cyles and derivatives of L-series, (with Y. Elias). Submitted.

  4. Biases in prime factorizations and Liouville functions for arithmetic progressions, (with P. Humphries and S. Shekatkar). Submitted. Latest

  5. Eisenstein cocycles over imaginary quadratic fields I: Values of L-functions, (with J. Flórez and C. Karabulut). Submitted.

  6. Lower bounds for Weil’s Explicit Formula via Selberg’s Trace Formula. Submitted.


  1. On smoothing singularities of elliptic orbital integrals on GL(n) and Beyond Endoscopy, (with O.E. Gonzalez, C.H. Kwan, S.J. Miller, R. Van Peski). To appear in Journal of Number Theory.

Some interesting courses I’ve taught:

  • Spring 2016: Topics in Geometry - Vassar College

    The first half of the course introduces Galois theory through famous problems in geometry; the second half of the course hints at modular forms through the problem of sums of squares, from Fermat to Jacobi. Find the notes here.

  • Fall 2012: Thinking Mathematically - Brooklyn College

    The first half of the course develops mathematical thinking in the sense of logic and proof; the second half of the course approaches social justice through matehmatical tools, considering how numbers can be used and misused.
