A motivating problem in number theory and algebraic geometry is to find all integer-valued solutions of a polynomial equation.  For example, Fermat's Last Theorem asks for all integer solutions to x^n + y^n = z^n, for n >= 3. This kind of problem is easy to state, but notoriously difficult to solve.  I'll explain a p-adic method for attacking Diophantine equations, namely, p-adic integration and the Chabauty--Coleman method.  Then I'll talk about some recent joint work on the topic.

The talk will include a crash course on infinite dimensional topology, with applications to various topological properties of the space of congruence classes of convex bodies in the Euclidean space.

This talk will cover some recent and preliminary results in the area of non-smooth dynamics, with connections to applications that have been overlooked.   Much of the talk will present open questions for research projects related to this area.

Taffy pullers are machines designed to stretch taffy. They can modeled by surface homeomorphisms, therefore they can be studied by geometry and topology. I will talk about how efficiency of taffy pullers can be defined mathematically and what some of the open questions are. I will also talk about Macaw, a computer program I am working on, which does related computations and which will hopefully help answer some of the open questions.

An academic webpage allows you to better communicate your work and help you become more recognizable in your research community. We'll talk about the very basics of how to set one up and what you should put on it----no prior experience necessary! Please bring a laptop if you can---as usual, refreshments will be provided.
