My research investigates the structure of certain arithmetic invariants arising in algebraic number theory. Specifically, I seek to develop new algebraic techniques to explore classical questions about the reciprocity between Hecke algebras and Galois deformation rings conjectured in the Langlands program. I also study the behavior of ideal class groups in families of number fields.
From October 2018-July 2020, my work was supported by a Heilbronn Research Fellowship. From July 2017-June 2018, my research was supported by an AAUW American Dissertation Fellowship and the University of Oregon Doctoral Research Fellowship. My research was partially supported by a GAANN Fellowship from Jan 2013 to May 2015.
