About Me

Vlad Matei

Visting Assistant Professor

I am currently a Postdoc. I received my Ph.D in May 2017 from the University of Wisconsin Madison. My advisor was the esteemed professor Jordan Ellenberg. Most of my research is centered around arithmetic statistics over function fields. I employ methods from algebraic geometry, topology, representation theory and combinatorics. Broadly I am interested in arithmetic geometry and algebraic number theory.

Here is a copy of my cv


1. Higher moments of arithmetic functions in Short Intervals (submitted), joint with Daniel Hast link

2. A geometric perspective on Landau's theorem over function fields(submitted), link

3. Counting low-degree covers of the projective line over finite fields, joint with Daniel Hast and Joseph Gunther draft

4. Constants in Titchmarsh divisor problems for elliptic curves (submitted), joint with Renee Bell, Clifford Blakestad, Alina Carmen Cojocaru, Alexander Cowan, Nathan Jones, Geoffrey Smith, Isabel Vogt link
