Keerthi Madapusi Pera’s research interests include integral models of Shimura varieties and their compactifications, Hodge cycles on abelian varieties, integral p-adic Hodge theory, and cycles on Shimura varieties. He has submitted several papers for publication, including “The Tate Conjecture for K3 Surfaces in Odd Characteristic,” “Integral Canonical Models for Spin Shimura Varieties,” and “Toroidal Compactifications on Integral Models of Shimura Varieties of Abelian Type.” Another paper, “Ordinary p-adic Hecke Correspondences, p-adic Monodromy, and the Irreducibility of the Moduli of Polarized K3 Surfaces,” is in preparation.
Madapusi Pera earned a BS in mathematics from Yale University, followed by MS and PhD degrees in mathematics from the University of Chicago. He was a National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University and also received a Benjamin Peirce Fellowship from its Mathematics Department.
Madapusi Pera joined the University of Chicago faculty in 2014.
