Research: My research is about combinatorial structures that arise in the geometry of algebraic varieties and the leveraging of these structures, particularly through tropical geometry, to study curves, moduli, and Gromov-Witten theory. I am an organizer of the algebraic geometry seminar at Cambridge.
Teaching: Toric Varieties (Michaelmas 2019) & Part II Algebraic Geometry (Lent 2020).
Student Research: You can read about the work of undergraduates who have worked with me here.
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 various communities to serve their needs.
- Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
