About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer at Princeton University, partially supported by the National Science Foundation. My mentor is Manjul Bhargava. Previously I was a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan under the supervision of Michael Zieve.

My research interests are in algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry.

I can be reached at moc.liamg@yksedo.ydna.

Teaching and Mentoring

At the University of Michigan, I was the primary instructor for ten sections from the introductory calculus sequence, and I was a lab instructor for two sections of differential equations.

In Winter 2019, I jointly mentored three undergraduate students in the LoG(M) program at the University of Michigan.
