I am a CLE Moore Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You can find me in 2241. In Spring 2017 I will be a visiting member of the Institute for Advanced Study. My research is centered around combinatorial techniques in algebraic geometry, particularly through connections to tropical and nonarchimedean geometry. My recent work has focused on the geometry of moduli spaces and logarithmic GromovWitten theory. Here is a short nontechnical description of my research, aimed at a general scientist. Here is a more technical research statement, from Fall 2015. Feel free to have a look at my cv or my papers. This fall, together with Bjorn Poonen, I am organizing the S.T.A.G.E learning seminar on tropical geometry. On Tuesday afternoons I will be at the HarvardMIT algebraic geometry seminar. Upcoming talks & travel:
