About Me

I am a third year graduate student at Emory University. I am pursuing my PhD in number theory, with a focus on arithmetic geometry; my advisor is David Zureick-Brown. Mathematically I am interested in studying rational points on Jacobians, solutions to Diophantine equations, Galois representations and modular curves, and local-global principles. Other than studying math, I love studying languages. I am a native Bulgarian speaker, and I have also studied Spanish, German, and French. I am also the proud owner of a beautiful italian greyhound named Milo (middle name Frobenius, because we're inseparable).
