I am a CLE Moore Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In Spring 2017 I will be a visiting member at the Institute for Advanced Study during the special program on homological mirror symmetry.
Research: My current research revolves around combinatorial structures that arise the study of algebraic varieties, with an emphasis 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.
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. This summer I will be a coordinator for Yale's SUMRY program. If you are an MIT undergraduate and want to work with me, send me an email.
