Welcome!

I am a lecturer at Cambridge and study algebraic geometry. I'm also a fellow at John's. You can find a more recent picture 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 read these excellent articles for details: I, II, and III.

I am currently teaching Part III Algebraic Geometry. I will teach Part II Algebraic Geometry in Lent 2022.

Cambridge Algebraic Geometry: I supervise PhD students Ajith, Patrick, Qaasim and Wanlong; Navid is a Herchel-Smith fellow in my group and Thibault will join as a postdoctoral fellow in 2022; Siddarth is visiting from Brown. Mark and his group have cognate interests. The broader group includes Ruadhaí Dervan and Eloise Hamilton. Together we run the seminar.

GAeL XXIX: I will be one of the lecturers at GAeL in Paris-Saclay in May 2022.

COMB in CAMB: Navid and Luca and organizing an exciting school on combinatorial methods in algebraic geometry from September 5-9 2022.

Oberwolfach Notes from October 2021: Links to notes of Renzo, Hannah, and Dhruv

Undergraduates: I regularly work 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 am proud to support the music and work of Anna Magdalena Kokits.

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.
