Eric Chen


Hello! I’m Eric, a 4th year PhD student studying math. My main research interests are about the surprising relationships between high-dimensional waves and polynomial equations with integer coefficients that we are only now slowly uncovering.

Before Princeton, I got my BA from UC Berkeley, graduated high school in Laguna Niguel (a beachy town between LA and San Diego), and I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. When I'm feeling stuck with research, which is most of the time, I like to try new recipes and go on runs and hikes. These days I’m also trying to retrieve some piano-playing and singing, as well as learning some new languages. Looking forward to meet you all!
