"Sometimes it's so hard to find what it is I'm trying to say. People might think you can turn creativity on and off, but its not like that. It just kinda comes out: a mash up of all these things you collect in your mind. You never know when it's gonna happen. But when it does, it's like magic. It's just that simple. And it's just that hard."
I am a mathematician, doing research primarily in the fields of
algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. I am an assistant professor at Grinnell College.

Thanks to a generous gift from the late Jack ('39) and Lucile Hanson ('40)
Harris, I have been awarded a competitive fellowship for junior faculty
members at Grinnell College for the 2015-2016 school year, and will not be
teaching during this year.
