About
I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), USA
◊ I am a member of the Geometry Group at VCU
My research interests are centered around the following themes:
◊ the geometry of algebraic curves, abelian varieties, and their moduli spaces
◊ quantum invariants of knots and 3manifolds
◊ geometric realizations of vertex algebras
◊ modern Schubert calculus
My research is currently supported by
the NSF grant DMS2404896 and
a Travel Support for Mathematicians gift from the Simons Foundation
I obtained my PhD at the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Berlin Mathematical School, Germany, in 2012.
Before arriving at VCU,
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
