From 2011-2014 I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the math department at UCR. As of 2015 I am on the job market and living in Seattle.
Research Interests |
I am interested in complex algebraic geometry, particularly in toric varieties, Calabi-Yau varieties, and mirror symmetry. My Ph.D. thesis (under the direction of Mark Gross at UCSD) was about applying the Gross-Siebert theory of mirror symmetry to study Calabi-Yau complete intersections in Grassmannians. Currently I am studying extremal transitions of Calabi-Yau manifolds and their relation to toric varieties and mirror symmetry constructions.
