I am an algebraic geometer with broader interests in algebra, geometry, representation theory, and number theory. I study moduli spaces of various kinds. What this means is that I try to understand how various objects in algebraic geometry deform and degenerate, and I use this information to say something about their properties. For my papers and preprints, see my research page.
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
- October 7 to October 12, 2018: Moduli Spaces - Birational Geometry and Wall Crossings, Banff, Canada.
I am currently supervising a reading course on Riemann surfaces.
Here are the notes of some of the advanced classes I have taught.
For other courses taught in the past, see my teaching page.
