Alison Miller

Alison Miller I am a Benjamin Peirce postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. I completed my PhD at Princeton in 2014 under Manjul Bhargava. Here is my CV.

I am interested in algebraic number theory, arithmetic statistics, arithmetic invariant theory, and connections with knot theory, specifically related to the Alexander module and Blanchfield pairing.

Publications and Preprints

Asymptotics for the number of Simple (4a+1)-Knots of Genus 1 (arxiv preprint)

PhD Thesis: Counting Simple Knots via Arithmetic Invariants.

See here for my older papers, mostly dating from my undergraduate years.
