Hello! As of fall 2018, I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Harvard math department, working with Mark Kisin. I am graduating in Spring 2019 and applying for post-grad jobs this fall.

My undergrad degree is a B.S. in mathematics with honors from Stanford, with a minor in computer science.

I can be contacted at lynnelle at math dot harvard dot edu.

Currently, my area of focus is p-adic automorphic forms, specifically eigenvarieties. My thesis is on slopes in eigenvarieties for definite unitary groups. Here is a short summary of the content. The preprint will be available soon.
