## Ravi Donepudi

I am a mathematician working as a quant at Goldman Sachs. I received my Ph.D in mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2021. My advisor was Patrick Allen.

My field of research is arithmetic algebraic geometry, which uses the tools of algebraic geometry to investigate phenomena (broadly) concerning the integers. Specifically, I am interested in questions involving the arithmetic of curves and abelian varieties over fields of positive characteristic and their connections to cryptography. Previously, I was an undergraduate student at Colorado College in the Rocky Mountains.
