About Me

I am a fifth-year graduate student at University of Virginia. My thesis advisor is Andrew Obus. My research interests are Arithmetic Geometry, Algebraic Number Theory and Galois Theory. In particular, I am working on the lifting problem for curves.

This is my CV!


1. Connectedness of the Moduli space of Artin-Schreier curves of fixed genus, 2017. Submitted.

Working Projects

The refined cyclic local lifting problem for curves, 2018. I am trying to prove that local cyclic extensions are liftable in towers. That is, given local G-extension k[[z]]/k[[t]] with G cyclic and a lift R[[S]]/R[[T]] of a subextension k[[s]]/k[[t]] to characteristic zero, there is a lift of k[[z]]/k[[t]] to characteristic zero that containing R[[S]]/R[[T]] as a subextension. One can learn more about the lifting problem from this paper written by Andrew Obus.


I am not teaching this semester.

Engineering Stuffs

I got a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering and worked as a Mechanical Engineer for a year in Vietnam. I hated using formulas so much that I switched to Math. Below are some of the simulation videos I made for my projects back in College.

1. Metal Clip Machine, 2009
2. Automatic Sorting System 1, 2009
3. Automatic Sorting System 2, 2009

My bachelor thesis (in Vietnamese) was about designing and constructing a model of pipe conveyor. Here are the drawings and the pictures of the real model.
