I am a lecturer in DPMMS at the University of Cambridge and a fellow at St. John's College. During the Fall 2018 semester, I'll be intermittently based at the Chennai Mathematical Institute. Previously, I was a CLE Moore Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Research: My research revolves around combinatorial structures that arise in the study of algebraic varieties and the leveraging of these structure to establish new results in algebraic geometry. My work was also the subject of this popular science article in Quanta Magazine, and my inability to find hay in haystacks was discussed in this one. If you feel like getting into it a bit more, check out Katz's nice Notices article.
Teaching: During the Easter term at Cambridge I'll be teaching metric and topological spaces.
Student Research: You can read about the work of undergraduates who have worked with me here.
I firmly believe the axioms laid out by Federico Ardila.
