Manjul Bhargava received his PhD from Princeton University in 2001 under the supervision of Andrew Wiles. His research interests span algebraic number theory, combinatorics, and representation theory. Bhargava's research includes fundamental contributions to the representation theory of quadratic forms and to p-adic analysis, as well
as to the representation theory of quadratic forms, to interpolation
problems and p-adic analysis, and to the study of ideal class groups of algebraic number fields. Manjul was appointed as a Clay Research Fellow for a term of five years beginning July 2000.
