I am a third year graduate student in the pure mathematics group at UC Davis interested in number theory (approximation theory and analytic number theory), centered around backwards continued fractions and expansions of the Riemann xi function respectively. In particular, I study the use of backwards continued fractions in approximations of real numbers and in the reduction theory of quadratic forms. As for analytic number theory, I study expansions of the Riemann xi function with respect to different orthogonal bases, and determine the asymptotic behaviour of the coefficient sequences.
