This page contains information for and about my students.
For prospective graduate students
I normally have up to three graduate students working with me at any one
time. I have unusually wide mathematical interests, and am happy to work with
students in almost any field of mathematics. If you want to be my student,
you will need to apply to our graduate programme.
Once you have done that, please drop me a line so I know to look for your
file during the evaluation process.
I have projects available at the M.Sc. and Ph.D. level in
- Automorphic Forms
- Representation Theory
- Analysis on manifolds
- Metric Geometry
- Differential Geometry
I generally expect incoming M.Sc. and Ph.D. students to pass the
Qualifying Exam upon arrival in September.
For propspective undergraduate research students
To all students
- I am happy to write you a letter of recommendation. Please first read what Ravi Vakil has to say.
