About me

I am a seventh-year PhD student at University of Chicago. I expect to graduate in Spring 2023. My real name is hard to pronounce, so I go by the name of Griffin. My research interest is geometric representation theory, with an eye towards number theory. My advisor is Prof. Ngô, Bảo Châu.


Other Notes



Pretentious meaning behind my logo The name Griffin comes from the mythological creature griffin (or gryphon, or griffon). My first name means "courage", and my last name means "king", both of which a griffin heraldically befits. The logo is my own design. It is a deformation of the Chinese characters for my name "驍(Xiāo)王(Wáng)" into a Griffin.
