## General Information

### Research Interests

I study the geometry and topology of complex algebraic varieties. My research focuses on Hodge theory, especially on the study of Hodge loci and normal functions, and on applications of mixed Hodge modules. Recently, I am also thinking about holonomic D-modules on complex abelian varieties and their Fourier-Mukai transforms, and about pluricanonical bundles and their properties. I am a member of the algebraic geometry group.

### Fall 2019 Teaching

This semester, I am teaching MAT 690 (Introduction to Hodge Modules).

### Mathematical Biography

I received my Ph.D. from Ohio State University in 2008, with Herb Clemens; after that, I was a postdoc at the University of Illinois at Chicago and at Kavli IPMU near Tokyo. Since 2012, I have been working as an assistant and now associate professor at Stony Brook University. During the academic year 2013/14, I was on leave at the University of Bonn. During the academic year 2015/16, I was supported by a Centennial Fellowship from the American Mathematical Society.
