- I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate at ASU, and my office is 744 Wexler, (480)-965-5003. Previously, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester.
- In the current Fall 2018 semester, I am teaching MAT 267 (Multivariable Calculus for Engineers) and MAT 598 (Number Theory in Function Fields). In Fall 2017 I taught MAT 342, while in Spring 2018 I taught MAT 267 and MAT 441.
- Lecture notes for my past courses, covering the full calculus sequence and linear algebra, along with some other topics courses, are available on my Course Notes page.
- Email is the best way to contact me: edummit[at]asu[dot]edu.
- Here is a copy of my CV.

- I earned a BS and MS in Mathematics from Caltech in 2009, an MA in Mathematics from UW-Madison in 2010, and my PhD in Mathematics from UW-Madison in 2014. From 2014-2017, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester.
- I am an algebraic number theorist by training. However, my interests also include a number of other topics, such as arithmetic dynamics, algebraic combinatorics, finite-field arithmetic and geometry, elliptic curves and modular forms, competition mathematics, and many other things too numerous to list here.
- Past and current projects of mine (see below) have involved finite-field hypergeometric functions and Kloosterman sums, arithmetic statistics of number fields, characterizations of power residue matrices, Kakeya sets over non-archimedean local rings, and computational aspects of p-adic modular symbols.
