I am a professor in mathematics at Cambridge and a fellow at St John's. I study algebraic geometry. 

My research concerns logarithmic and tropical geometry,  and the application of these ideas to questions in moduli theory and enumerative geometry. 

You can get a flavour some of my work from this Quanta article and from these articles in the Notices: I, II, and III. Moduli theory is an enchanting subject: see Rahul's compilation of reflections

Cambridge Algebraic Geometry: I supervise PhD students Ajith, Patrick, Siao Chi, and Terry. You can get a sense of what people work on here.  Mark and his students have similar interests. The broader group includes postdoctoral fellows Eloise, Renata, and Tim. We run a seminar

Undergraduates: I help coordinate the Cambridge Summer Research in Mathematics Programme. You can read about work of my former students here.

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

My work is currently supported by the EPSRC. From June 2024 I will be supported by an ERC Starting Grant
