I am a mathematician working on periods of mixed Tate motives. This is a fancy way of saying that I am trying to understand the hidden relations between integrals of rational functions from the modern perspective. Classical polylogarithms and volumes of non-Euclidean polytopes are examples of such integrals.
I received my PhD in mathematics at HSE, Moscow, in 2016. At present, I am working as an L. E. Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago.
