# Maleeha Khawaja

I'm a third year PhD student, at the University of Sheffield, working in number theory. My supervisor is Dr. Frazer Jarvis. I am due to graduate in Autumn 2024.

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 explicit resolution of Diophantine equations, computational number theory, and rational points on hyperelliptic and elliptic curves.
