## Welcome!

I am an associate professor in mathematics at **Cambridge**** **and a fellow at **John's**. I study algebraic geometry. A more recent **picture** is here.

My work focuses on tropical geometry in moduli theory and enumerative geometry. You can get a flavour for it from this **Quanta article** and these more detailed articles: **I**, **II**, and **III**.

I am teaching **Part II Algebraic Geometry** this term.

**Cambridge Algebraic Geometry: **I supervise PhD students **Ajith**, **Patrick**, Siao Chi, **Siddarth** (with **Melody**), and Terry. **Thibault** is a postdoctoral fellow in the group. You can get a sense of what people work on **here**. The broader group includes postdoctoral fellows **Tim** and **Eloise****. **** ****Mark** and his students have similar interests**. **We run a **seminar**.

**Undergraduates: **I enjoy working with undergraduate students. You can read about their work **here**. I help coordinate the **Cambridge Summer Research in Mathematics Programme**.

**Editorial: **I am an editor for the **Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society**.

My work is currently supported by the **EPSRC**.

*I support and believe in ***Federico Ardila's*** axioms:*

*Mathematical talent is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.**Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.**Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by communities to serve their needs.**Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.*
