Amita Malik

Welcome to my homepage! I am a PhD student working with Professor Bruce Berndt and Professor Alexandru Zaharescu in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before joining UIUC, I did my MS at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.

My research interests lie in Number Theory. More specifically, I study Riemann zeta and related functions, exponential and character sums, the circle method, partitions, and q-series. Recently, I have become interested in studying arithmetic aspects of circle packings and thin groups.

I will graduate in May, 2017.

I co-organize the weekly Graduate Student Number Theory Seminar at UIUC. More information can be found here.

With Xin Zhang, I am leading the Illinois Goemetry Lab project titled "Geometry of Apollonian circle packings".

With Greg Martin and Caroline Turnage-Butterbaugh, I am co-organizing the special session "Advances in Algebraic and Analytic Number Theory" at the MCA-2017.

I am the Vice-President of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) chapter at Illinois. Please see the AWM webage for our recent activities and more information.
