"Math is torture. Our mathematical proficiency is proportional to the extent we have tortured ourselves."

"I run into so many people who want to solve an entire problem in their head before they try anything. I tell them they have to start wiggling, and if that doesn't work, try thrashing."


My name is Kaj Hansen. I just completed my third year as an undergraduate math major at the University of Georgia. This summer, I am participating in an REU here at UGA under the direction of Dr. Robert Rumely, studying arithmetic dynamics in Berkovich space. Shortly thereafter, I will begin the application process to Ph.D. programs in mathematics. As one might guess from my posts here, my interests lie primarily in abstract algebra. Despite this, I am also (slowly) putting together the Internet's first video series on Ramsey theory. This can be found in its incomplete form here.

To contact me, you can either ping me in the chat or send me an email at khansen3@uga.edu. I only ask that you not email me questions that could be asked on here instead.
