My name is Asimina and I am a third year mathematics PhD student at the University of Connecticut. I am supported by the Graduate Fellowship for STEM Diversity (GFSD). My interests are in number theory and algebra, specifically, arithmetic geometry and algebraic number theory. My advisor is Álvaro Lozano-Robledo.

In Spring 2020, I graduated from Macaulay Honors at Baruch College (CUNY) with a BA in Mathematics and minors in Philosophy and Interdisciplinary studies of New York. In Fall 2017, I placed second at the Traders@MIT competition (the largest intercollegiate algorithmic trading competition in the country). In Spring 2019, I worked in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) with Group One Trading as a Trade Analyst Intern. In the summer of 2018, I participated in the NSF funded number theory REU at Oregon State University and was advised by Holly Swisher. In Spring 2019, I studied abroad in Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (BSM). In the summer of 2019, I participated in the NSF funded number theory REU at Texas A&M University and was advised by Riad Masri. My senior year, I was the first student at Baruch to write an honors thesis in math, and was advised by Andrew Obus.

I have a 2 year old female German Shepherd named Athena. Her instagram is @athenahamakiotes. In my free time, I like to do Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I also enjoy swimming, going on walks/hikes, and listening to music.
