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.

Last year I taught Part II Algebraic Geometry and Part III Algebraic Geometry.

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.
