Adam Logan

Adam Logan graduated from Princeton University in 1995 and received his doctorate from Harvard four years later.  He then held postdoctoral positions at MSRI, UC Berkeley, CRM in Montreal, and the University of Waterloo as well as a tenure-track position at the University of Liverpool before leaving academia, first for finance and then to work for the Government of Canada, where he has been since 2010.  His primary research interests have to do with modularity of varieties of dimension greater than 1 and arithmetic of K3 surfaces, but he is easily persuaded to work on other computational problems involving the arithmetic of geometrically interesting varieties, as illustrated by recent and ongoing work on higher modularity of elliptic curves over function fields, surfaces of maximal Picard rank, Ceresa cycles of plane quartic curves, and modular forms associated to Clifford algebras.  In September 2023 he will join the Collaboration as Senior Research Associate at ICERM.

Barinder Banwait

Barinder Banwait joined the Collaboration in September 2022. His research into rational points on modular curves includes work on computing pseudoeigenvalues of modular forms as well as determining uniform sets of prime-degree isogenies of elliptic curves. He is also interested in computational aspects of Galois representations of higher dimensional abelian varieties and has contributed to Sage and the LMFDB. Barinder received a BA and MMath from Cambridge University in 2009 and a PhD from Warwick University in 2013 under the supervision of John Cremona.
