About Me

I am an assistant professor at Simon Fraser University working in algebraic geometry. I am currently serving as graduate co-chair for the math department.

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

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

I am a co-organizer for Foundations of Computational Mathematics meeting FoCM 2020 taking place in Vancouver in 2020.

I am secretary of the SIAM PNW Section.

Charles Doran, David Favero, Jenna Rajchgot, and I are organizing the next Canadian Western Algebraic Geometry Symposium in March 2020.
