I have been a Simons Instructor (postdoc) at Stony Brook University since Fall 2020 and am currently on the job market. I obtained my PhD in mathematics from the University of Chicago under the supervision of Alexander Beilinson and Madhav Nori. I study algebraic cycles, measures of irrationality, and K-trivial varieties.

Together with Christian Schnell, I organize the Algebraic Geometry Seminar at Stony Brook. With Fabian Lehmann, I organize the Math Postdoc Seminar held jointly by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics and the math department.


My preprints/articles on arXiv, Google scholar, MathSciNet.

Upcoming talks and travel

Birational Complexity at the SCGP

I am one of the organizers of the conference Birational Complexity of Algebraic Varieties which will be held at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics from December 12 to 16 2022. The conference will be preceded by an RTG workshop aimed at graduate students which will also be held at the SCGP.


I currently teach MAT 663: Selected topics on algebraic cycles MW 9:45-11:05 in P122.

Undergraduate students

Edward Varvak: He studied bitangent lines to nodal curves to extend the results of Caporaso and Sernesi to nodal quintics and sextics. He is now a graduate student at UIC.
