Ariel WeissI’m a fourth year PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield, working under the supervision of Dr. Tobias Berger. I was previously an undergraduate and masters student at Queens’ College, Cambridge.

My research is in algebraic number theory, and in particular, the connection between Galois representations and automorphic representations. I’m especially interested in the Galois representations attached to non-cohomological automorphic representations. My previous project was to prove an irreducibility and big image result for weight (k,2) Siegel modular forms. Currently, I’m working with Galois representations associated to automorphic representations of general unitary groups.

Here is my CV.

Young Researchers in Algebraic Number Theory (Y-RANT)

I’m a co-organiser of Young Researchers in Algebraic Number Theory which will take place in Sheffield from 8th-9th November 2018. Please get in touch for more information!
