Soham Karwa

I am a PhD Student at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (LSGNT). While my interests are still rather broad, I love the connections between Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry and am currently learning more about Shimura Varieties and Birational Geometry (with a splash of String Theory!).

I did my Undergraduate and Part III at Trinity College, University of Cambridge where I specialised in Number Theory and did my Part III essay on the Arithmetic Statistics of Elliptic Curves with Professor Jack Thorne.

Outside of my Academic life, you will find me telling stories about Maths and Science through my project ‘Mathmo’. Mathmo is an educational platform which brings to life the human stories behind the ideas in Maths and Science.

I love to have interesting conversations and hear peoples stories so if you would like to chat do send me an email at
