Samuel Bloom, Ph.D.

Lecturer in Mathematics at the

University of Maryland, College Park

Hi! I study number theory and algebraic geometry, and I'm currently a Lecturer at the University of Maryland. I'm interested in abelian varieties over number fields and finite fields, low-genus curves, Galois representations, modular forms, and applications in cryptography. I graduated in May 2018, and my Ph.D. advisor was Larry Washington. I was the President of the Directed Reading Program at UMD.

You can contact me at bloom@math.umd.edu. My office is Room 4113 in the Mathematics Building.

You can find my Resume here. It was last updated in January 2019.

I fence at the DC Fencers Club. I am an organizer of Tikkun Leil Shabbat.
