Welcome to my website. My name is David Nguyen. I am a second year graduate student in Mathematics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My current interest is Analytic Number Theory. My general research interests include Number Theory, Geometry, Combinatorics, Quantum Physics, and the relationships among them. Here is the link to my CV.
Below is my academic journey. I started my undergraduate as an Engineering major, latter found and switched to Mathematics.

Recently, we have started a graduate number theory seminar at UCSB, following increasing interests in Number Theory in our department. Please click the link above for more.
I give two proofs–one elementary, one uses complex analysis–of an integral representation of the binomial coefficients.
