My research interests are in Algebraic Number Theory, Class Field Theory, and Diophantine Geometry.
One of my primary focuses is on bridging the gap between our theoretical understanding of elliptic curves and the explicit construction of examples, and the calculation of data pertaining to elliptic curves. In this direction, my recent work includes the classification of minimal discriminants and local data (joint work with Manami Roy) of rational elliptic curves with a nontrivial torsion subgroup. The latter also explicitly classifies all rational elliptic curves with a nontrivial torsion point which have global Tamagawa number equal to one. The global Tamagawa number is one of the quantities that occur in the famed Birch and SwinnertonDyer conjecture. In addition, Roy and I have explicitly classified the cuspidal automorphic representation attached to rational elliptic curves with a nontrivial odd torsion point.
Part of my work on elliptic curves is motivated by the Modified Szpiro Conjecture, which is equivalent to Masser and Oesterlé‘s ABC Conjecture. To this end, I have shown that there are infinitely many good elliptic curves with a specified torsion subgroup. This generalizes Masser’s Theorem on the existence of infinitely many good elliptic curves with full 2torsion. I have also established lower bounds for the modified Szpiro ratio. In fact, these lower bounds are sharp if the ABC Conjecture holds.
Undergraduate Research
I am also passionate about introducing undergraduates to research topics in algebraic geometry and number theory. Through the Pomona Research in Mathematics Experience (PRiME) and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Undergraduate Program (MSRIUP), I have directed the following undergraduate research projects:
