About me

Since 2019 I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Virginia Commonwealth University, USA.

My research interests are centered around the geometry of algebraic curves and their moduli spaces. In my work I explore the enumerative geometry of general pointed curves, cycles on moduli spaces of curves, and modern Schubert calculus. Recently, I have been working on the interplay of quantum algebra and the geometry of algebraic curves.

I obtained my PhD at the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Berlin Mathematical School, Germany, in April 2012. Before arriving at Virginia Commonwealth University, I was at Rutgers University, USA; the University of Georgia, USA; the Fields Institute, Canada; the University of Utah, USA; and the Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany.


Seminars

I am coorganizing the following seminar series (all talks are now delivered online):

The Geometry Seminar at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The Colloquium Series of the Math Department at Virginia Commonwealth University.


Events

I am coorganizing the special session Quantum Algebra and Geometry at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 6-9, 2021. The meeting will take place virtually.


Lectures

Here is the video of my lecture on Geometric loci in moduli spaces of curves at UNAM in Mexico City, Sep. 2018.
