Daniel File


Dan received his PH.D from Ohio State in 2010 and was a visiting assistant professor at University of Iowa until coming to Muhlenberg in 2013.

Dan’s research is in number theory. Specifically, he is interested in modular forms, automorphic representation theory, and L-functions. Modular forms are functions that encode number theoretic information in their Fourier coefficients. Representation theory is similar to linear algebra, and it can be used to understand modular forms.

Dan enjoys rock climbing and bouldering. He’s climbed in the Red River Gorge in Kentucky, the New River Gorge in West Virginia, and in Boulder, Colorado. Dan also enjoys running, cooking, and traveling.
