My name is Winston Spencer Leslie, but I always go by my middle name, Spencer. I am an Assistant Professor at Boston College. I am currently funded by NSF standard grant DMS-2200852 (2022-2025).

I am interested in representation theory, with emphases in automorphic, p-adic, and geometric representation theory. In particular, I enjoy thinking about:

  • Automorphic representations of reductive groups or their covers
  • Relative trace formulae and local harmonic analysis
  • Generalization of the Hitchin Fibration
  • Fourier coefficients and Whittaker functions
