Tori Day

Visiting Lecturer in Mathematics

Tori Day ’14 is a number theorist who studies Galois representations. One can think of Galois representations as tools that allow you to study more complicated number theoretic objects in terms of simpler ones. Her previous work focused on using deformation theory to study Galois representations associated to ordinary modular forms. Her current project is focused on studying the images of Galois representations coming from torsion points on elliptic curves. Day is also interested in exploring the intersections of queer theory and mathematics, with an emphasis on how queer theory can be applied to mathematics pedagogy.
