About

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Adithya. I'm currently a master's student in math at the University of Toronto. Here's a bit about me:

Current Work

  • I make math videos on YouTube. I have a YouTube channel called Aleph 0, where I upload short video explainers at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level. I started this channel during my second year of undergrad, with the goal of sharing mathematical stories which wouldn't otherwise receive a lot of exposure online.

  • I work on math research. My research is in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. I use methods from modular forms and analytic number theory to study special values of LL-functions and Iwasawa theory. Check out the Research tab for some of my recent papers and preprints. See the Notes tab for some expository writing in number theory.

Other / Previous Work

  • In 2018, I was on the Canadian National Debate Team. On the team, we competed at the World Schools Debating Championships (WSDC) in Croatia, where I ranked 9th Best Speaker in the World. I was also the 2018 Harvard College World Schools Debating Champion.
  • In the summer of 2022, I was a R&D intern at RealSage, a Toronto-based real-estate startup which provides data insights to landlords. I developed the Python back-end of RealSage Price, an analytical tool that performs rental price analysis of available properties in a given neighbourhood based on certain parameters.
  • I sing South Indian classical music. I've been learning and performing ever since I was 8 years old, and it's an important part of who I am. Check out some of my singing here or here!
