Alison Miller

Alison Miller I am a Benjamin Peirce and NSF postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. I completed my PhD at Princeton in 2014 under Manjul Bhargava.

I am interested in algebraic number theory, arithmetic invariant theory, and connections with classical knot invariants.

My PhD thesis is here: Counting Simple Knots via Arithmetic Invariants.

I also have a page with my older papers, mostly dating from my undergraduate years.

I am currently (Fall 2017) teaching Math 223, Algebraic Number Theory.

In Spring 2016 I taught Math 222, Lie Groups and Lie Algebras.

In Fall 2015 I taught Math 221, Graduate Algebra.

In Fall 2014 I taught Math 233a, Introduction to Schemes and Math 250, Algebraic Invariants of Knots.

Other Activities

During the 2014-2015 academic year I co-organized the Harvard Number Theory Seminar(no website; however, announcements of upcoming talks are posted on the math department seminar listing).

In Fall 2014 I helped Rosalie Belanger-Rioux organize Math Table, Harvard's undergraduate mathematics colloquium.

I used to maintain the Graduate Student's Guide to Generals when I was a graduate student at Princeton University.
