John Sheridan

Graduate student

I am a sixth-year graduate student at Stony Brook University, NY. I study algebraic geometry and my advisor is Robert Lazarsfeld.

My interests include the Brill-Noether theory of curves and higher dimensional varieties, syzygies of varieties in projective space, and questions in birational geometry more generally.

You can find my CV here.
