About Me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at UIUC working with Sheldon Katz. My research interests are Algebraic Geometry and Derived Categories. In particular, I am interested in Bridgeland stability conditions and connections to birational geometry and physics. Previously I was a postgraduate student of Arend Bayer at the University of Edinburgh.

I am on leave for the 2017-2018 academic year, and can be contacted at

Research Opportunities

Students considering a graduate degree in Mathematics should consider applying for an REU program. These are opportunities to gain research experience and to get paid doing it!

In 2012, I was a mentor at the University of Connecticut REU under the supervision of Milena Hering. Our students presented at the Young Mathematicians Conference in Ohio, and wrote a paper (to appear in Proceedings of the AMS) on their work.

Math students at UIUC can also gain research experience through the Illinois Geometry Lab.
