## Welcome!

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.

A more recent picture.

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.
