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. I spent 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. In 2017 I will be working with two high school students as part of MIT's PRIMES-USA program and one undergraduate student as part of a UROP. I am presently a program coordinator for Yale's summer undergraduate research program, SUMRY. If you are an MIT undergraduate and want to work with me in Fall 2017, send me an email.
