About Me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer at Princeton University, partially funded 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

I have served as the primary lecturer for eight semesters of courses from the introductory calculus sequence at the University of Michigan. I have also served as a graduate teaching assistant for two semesters of differential equations. In Fall 2020, I was the primary lecturer for two sections of Math 115 at the University of Michigan (conducted remotely).

In Winter 2019, I jointly mentored three undergraduate students (Mengmeng Wang, Shuyang Wang, Ziyi Zhang) alongside Christin Bibby and Hailun Zheng in the LoG(M) program at the University of Michigan.
