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 69, 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.
