Jae Hyung Sim

PhD Candidate in Mathematics


I am a PhD candidate and a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at Boston University. My advisor is Glenn Stevens. I completed my B.A. in mathematics with a minor in computer science at the University of Chicago.

I am interested in number theory with an inclination towards algebraic number theory. More specifically, I am interested in Stark's Conjectures and Hilbert's 12th Problem.

You can also find me in my office at Boston University's CCDS 536.
