Jeremy Booher

I am a postdoc in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Canterbury. I am working with Felipe Voloch.

Previously, I was a postdoc at the University of Arizona, working with Bryden Cais. Before that, I was a graduate student at Stanford University. My advisor was Brian Conrad. Here is my CV.

I am interested in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry, especially Galois representations and coverings of curves in characteristic p.

My email is jeremy.booher [AT]

I am in Room 616 of the Jack Erskine building.

    While at the University of Arizona, I helped with the Tucson Math Circle. During many summers, I worked at PROMYS (2007, 2008, 2010, 2011) and SUMAC (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), and helped with SURIM (2012).

    Expository Notes and Articles

    Expository writing including my senior thesis, Part III essay, and notes for many of the talks I have given at PROMYS and in graduate school.

    Warning: the ones which came from the summers I spent as a counselor at PROMYS use non-standard notation: taking a quotient of a ring by a principal ideal is denoted by a subscript. In particular, Zp is the integers modulo p, not the p-adic integers. Furthermore, the group of units in Zp is denoted by Up.
