About Me

I am a sixth year Ph.D student in Mathematics at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. My advisor is Professor B.Berndt, and I am also co-advised by Professor A.Zaharescu. My interests include analytic number theory. In particular, my current research is on joint visibility of lattice points in higher dimensional spaces.
