Welcome!

I am an associate professor in mathematics at Cambridge and a fellow at John's. I study algebraic geometry. A more recent picture is 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 these more detailed articles: I, II, and III.

Last year I taught Part II Algebraic Geometry and Part III Algebraic Geometry.

Cambridge Algebraic Geometry: I supervise PhD students Ajith, Patrick, Qaasim (with Tom), Siddarth (with Melody), and Wanlong. Terry and Siao Chi will join in the fall. Navid and Thibault are postdoctoral fellows in the group. You can get a sense of what people work on here. Mark and his group have similar interests. The broader group includes Ruadhaí and Eloise. We run a seminar.

Undergraduates: I enjoy working 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 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.
