David Hansen

I'm a Ritt assistant professor here at Columbia. I like algebra and number theory, especially p-adic Hodge theory and p-adic aspects of the Langlands program. Previously I was a postdoc at l'Institut de Mathematiques de Jussieu. During 2010-2013 I was a Ph.D. student at Boston College, where my advisor was Avner Ash. I graduated from Brown University in May 2010 with a B.A. in mathematics. Here's my CV.

In Fall 2016, I'm teaching a graduate topics class: p-adic Hodge theory.
I'm also teaching Honors Math A.

Other writings

Warning: I haven't edited some of these very carefully. Also, some of these have been cannibalized by "official" papers above.
