### Research

I study arithmetic geometry, Hodge theory, and topology of varieties with a particular interest in periods and motives. My current research is on periods of mixed Tate motives, the KZB connection, and relations between cyclotomic values of multiple polylogarithms and iterated integrals of Eisenstein series. My doctoral advisor was Professor Richard Hain.
