Ila Varma

I am an Assistant Professor at University of Toronto. I also hold an adjunct position at UC San Diego.

Previously, I was an Assistant Professor at UC San Diego. Before that, I was a NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia University and Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. in September 2015
at Princeton University under the advisement of Manjul Bhargava and Richard Taylor.
 
I'm mainly interested in:
