Jane Shi

I am a first year math PhD student at MIT.

I am interested in number theory.

Previously, I was a pure math masters student at the University of Cambridge with a focus in number theory.

Even before, I was an undergraduate student at the University of Waterloo studying a double major in CS and Pure Math. I was fortunate to be advised by David Jao. I worked on Elliptic Curve Cryptography.

Work Experience

I interned at Microsoft Research as an Undergraduate Research Intern, where I was fortunate to be advised by Craig Costello.

Previously, I worked on database compression algorithms at SAP as a research intern.

I also worked as software engineering intern at Facebook Menlo Park office and Jane Street NYC office.
