André de Moura is starting his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Yale University, where his research was in algebraic combinatorics, specifically in tropical geometry and local-h polynomials. More recently, his research is more focused in arithmetic geometry, the application of algebraic geometry to number-theoretic problems. He plans to study local-to-global principles during his time at UIC.
