Kirsti Biggs

I am an EPSRC-funded PhD student in Analytic Number Theory at the University of Bristol, working under the supervision of Professor Trevor Wooley.
My research involves the Hardy–Littlewood circle method and its application to Diophantine problems, particularly various analogues of Waring's problem. I am also interested in Diophantine approximation and additive combinatorics.
