My thesis is on hybrid bounds of L-functions associated to holomorphic cusp forms, advised by Jeffrey Hoffstein. My research up to now has been about automorphic forms, their associated L-functions and shifted convolution sums.

A little about me

I am a 2-year assistant professor at University of Maine. For this semester, I am teaching two sections of MAT 127, Calculus II.

I am born in Macau, China. Macau is a city that is very close to Hong Kong, and had been a Portugal colony before Dec 20, 1999. I speak Cantonese most comfortably (we use traditional Chinese characters), with English being the next one.

My first two undergraduate years was done in a community college in Santa Monica, California. I transferred to UC Berkeley after that, and finished a double major of Maths and CS. Then I went on to Brown University, and obtained my Ph.D. in May 2014.

A fun little something

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be David Eisenbud's Commutative Algebra with a view towards Algebraic Geometry.

I am an attempt to write on commutative algebra in a way that includes the geometric ideas that played a great role in its formation; with a view, in short, towards Algebraic Geometry. I cover the material that graduate students studying Algebraic Geometry - and in particular those studying the book Algebraic Geometry by Robin Hartshorne - should know. The reader should have had one year of basic graduate algebra.
