For my papers and preprints, see my research page.
I am an algebraic geometer with broader interests in algebra, geometry, representation theory, and number theory. I study moduli spaces: moduli of curves, branched covers, surfaces, and so on. A lot of my research is about questions of a classical flavor, but the answers often involve modern techniques like deformation theory and stacks.
Before coming to ANU, I was a post-doc at UGA and Columbia, and before that I was a graduate student of Joe Harris at Harvard.
Just after graduate school, I wrote a rough non-technical explanation of my doctoral research, which might interest or amuse you.
Upcoming and current activities
