Welcome! My name is Christian, and I am a PhD student in mathematics at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, working under the supervision of Igor Shparlinski, Bryce Kerr and Alina Ostafe. I completed an honours degree (first class) in mathematics at the University of Calgary in 2021, where I was awarded multiple university medals.
I have a strong love for all things number theory and computation. My PhD work is currently centered around arithmetic problems in rational function fields over finite fields, and I am particularly interested in exponential sums in this setting. I also love computational problems and I am always looking for ways to utilize programs such as Python, Sage and Magma to make my life easier.
