Welcome!

I am a lecturer at Cambridge and a fellow at John's.

I am interested in algebraic geometry and combinatorics. My work focuses on tropical geometry in the context of moduli theory and enumerative geometry.

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 and Wanlong; Navid is a Herchel-Smith fellow in my group and Thibault will join as a postdoctoral fellow in 2021; Qaasim is visiting from the LSGNT and Siddarth from Brown. Mark and his students have cognate research interests and we organize the seminar.

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.

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.
