I like talking about math with people, so if you want to chat, get in touch!

I am a CLE Moore Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the summer of 2017 I was a coordinator of the SUMRY program for undergraduates at Yale. In Spring 2017 as a member at the Institute for Advanced Study, during the special semester on homological mirror symmetry. 

Research: My current research revolves around combinatorial structures that arise in the study of algebraic varieties. My primary focus has been on applications of tropical, non-archimedean, and logarithmic techniques to the geometry of curves, their moduli spaces, and their enumerative geometry. Here is a short non-technical description of some aspects of my work, aimed at a general scientist. Feel free to have a look at my cv or my papers. You can find my postdoctoral application materials from 2015 here. Updated materials will be available shortly.

Teaching: In Fall 2017 I will teach 18.782 at MIT, an introductory course on arithmetic geometry, aimed at undergraduate mathematics majors - information on this will be available soon. In Fall 2016, I taught 18.01A/18.02A, an accelerated single and multivariable calculus course for freshmen. 

Students: I enjoy learning mathematics with my talented and motivated high school and undergraduate students. You can read about the work of undergraduates who did research with me here to get a feeling for what research with me might be like. In summer 2017 I was a coordinator for Yale's SUMRY program. I am presently supervising a high school student as a part of MIT's larger PRIMES-USA program. I am also happy to work with undergraduates at MIT via the UROP program

If you are an MIT undergraduate and want to work with me starting in Fall 2017, send me an email.
