Research interests

My research is in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. I am particularly interested in Iwasawa theory, a beautiful topic which bridges analytic objects (e.g., complex L-functions such as the classical Riemann zeta-function) and algebra (e.g., arithmetic in number fields, structure of rational points on curves). My current research is concerned with the behavior of p-adic L-functions attached to modular forms.
