I am a CLE Moore Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You can find me in 2-241. 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 non-archimedean geometry. My recent work has focused on the geometry of moduli spaces and logarithmic Gromov-Witten theory. Here is a short non-technical 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 Harvard-MIT algebraic geometry seminar.
