I’m happy to report that both of my graduating Ph.D. students have settled on plans for the next few years.  Guillermo Mantilla-Soler will be a postdoc at UBC; Ekin Ozman will spend a year on an EPDI fellowship in Barcelona, Paris, and Bonn, and then will return to the US for a postdoc at UT-Austin.

Meanwhile, by the law of conservation of promising young number theorists, we have two new postdocs joining us at UW as part of our new RTG in algebraic geometry and number theoryDavid Brown, who just finished his Ph.D. under Bjorn Poonen at Berkeley, and Bryden Cais, a former student of Brian Conrad who comes to us from a CRM postdoc at McGill.

    Please pass on my congratulations to Ekin and Guillermo!

    And you’ll like David, I heard him give a seminar talk. It was one of those talks where I looked at the title and thought “Shit, I’m not going to understand a damn thing” but actually got something out of it.

    You’ll like Bryden too. (Or, at least, I do.) He spent his early years learning modular forms, classical complex function theory and Ramanujan-type-math. He then became Brian’s student and learned how to manipulate various p-adic cohomology theories. It’s an unusual pair of strengths.
