# Maleeha Khawaja

I'm currently a Research Associate, at the University of Bristol, working with Dr. Céline Maistret. From October 2020 - April 2024, I was a PhD student at the University of Sheffield under the supervision of Dr. Frazer Jarvis. I am awaiting my viva.

I previously completed my MSc at the University of Nottingham under the supervision of Dr. Christian Wuthrich. Prior to that, I completed my maths undergraduate degree at the University of Warwick.

My interests lie in the arithmetic of curves, rational points on curves, computational number theory and the explicit resolution of Diophantine equations.
