Main areas of research
My main area of research is analytic number theory, with elements of algebraic number theory. More precisely, I have dealt with class groups and class numbers of real and imaginary quadratic fields, $L$-functions of elliptic curves and zeta-functions of real quadratic fields. I have applied the circle method, Kloosterman and Gauss sums. Recently I am interested in the problems for $k$-free values of inhomogeneous two-variable polynomials and estimating the average number of divisors of one-variable quadratic polynomials.
