**Name**: Akshunna S. Dogra, **Email**: adogra@nyu.edu **Links**: arXiv, Git, Google Scholar, Orcid, ResearchGate, Semantic Scholar

**Position**: President's Scholar, Dept. of Mathematics, Imperial College London

**Fields of interest**: Applied Mathematics, Dynamical Systems Theory, Information Theory, Mathematical Physics, Number Theory

**Research Philosophy**: I am a model maker looking for good problems and people. If you/I have a good idea/question/answer, lets make it better together. **Also**: Everything is a dynamical system if you are brave enough.

**Favorite Mathematics book**: *Proofs from the Book*, by M. Aigner, G. M. Ziegler** Favorite Physics book**: *The Classical Theory of Fields* (Volume 2 in Course of Theoretical Physics), by L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz

**Favorite historical figure**: Evariste Galois (revolutionized mathematics, fomented a revolution, and died stupidly for love in a duel before age 21). I don't advise emulating all his actions. But do try to cram as much of life into your years as him.

**An interesting, non-academia fact about me**: I own/co-designed/co-manage a subsistence farming operation (we produce the best ghee on the planet).
