## Alex Ghitza

I am a senior lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the University of Melbourne, in Australia.

My research is in **arithmetic algebraic geometry**, an area at the intersection of **number theory** and **algebraic geometry**.
I am also interested in **computational aspects** of number theory, algebraic geometry, representation theory, and other algebraic topics.

I organise a weekly working Number Theory Seminar.
