About Me

I am an assistant professor at Simon Fraser University working in algebraic geometry.

Previous to this, I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. I completed my PhD at the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin

Upcoming Events

Piotr Achinger, Jarek Buczynski, and Masha Vlasenko and I are organizing the semester-long program Varieties: Arithmetic and Transformations at the Banach Center in Fall 2018. Applications for funding are now open.

Together with Nils Bruin, I organize the NTAG seminar at SFU.

Research Interests

  • Toric Geometry, T-Varieties
  • Deformation Theory, Hilbert Schemes, and Fano Schemes
  • Mirror Symmetry and Fano Varieties
