## Welcome!

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

**Research: **I study combinatorial and "tropical" structures that arise in the geometry of algebraic varieties and use them to study curves, moduli, and enumerative geometry.

**Teaching:** **Part II Algebraic Geometry (Lent 2021) & Part III Algebraic Surfaces (Lent 2021). **

**Past Teaching: ****Toric Varieties (Michaelmas 2019)** & **Part II Algebraic Geometry (Lent 2020)**.

**Cambridge Algebraic Geometry: **I supervise two PhD students (**Patrick Kennedy-Hunt** and **Wanlong Zheng**); **Navid Nabijou** is a Herchel-Smith fellow in my group; **Qaasim Shafi** is visiting my group from the LSGNT. Mark **Gross** and his students have cognate research interests; we organize the **algebraic geometry seminar****. **

**Travel: **Some** ****Past Adventures**.

**Undergraduates: **I regularly work with undergraduate students. You can read about their work **here**.

**Editorial: **I am an editor for the **Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society**. Instructions for submission are **here**.

**Kristin DeVleming** has a list of things that young mathematicians can do during the current global health crisis that may help you. It's **linked here**.

**I am proud to support the music and work of ****Anna Magdalena Kokits****. Here is one of my ****favourite pieces**** and here is ****another****.**

*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.*
