Brief Bio

Dr. Yasaki has an M.A. (2000) and Ph.D. (2005) from Duke University under the supervision of L. Saper. After a three year post-doc at the University of Massachusetts working with P. Gunnells, he has been part of the UNCG faculty since 2008. His research interests are in the area of modular forms, particularly the connection between explicit reduction theory of quadratic forms and the computation of Hecke data for automorphic forms. Recent work has focused on producing new examples of cusp forms over number fields of small degree. Reprints and preprints of publications can be found on his personal webpage. Yasaki currently serves as the UNCG Math Club faculty advisor.
