I have moved to Queen Mary University of London. My new webpage can be found here. (This page will be redirected after 10 seconds).

I am a CRM postdoc at the University of Montreal for the 2016-2017 academic year.

From August 2015-July 2016 I was a postdoc under the supervision of Pär Kurlberg and from July 2013-July 2015 I was a postdoc at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Zeév Rudnick.

In May 2013, I completed a PhD at the University of Rochester under the guidance of Prof. Steven Gonek.

Research interests: analytic number theory, especially L-functions, multiplicative functions, classical automorphic forms; mathematical physics, epsecially quantum chaos
