I am a Reader at the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick. Prior to coming to Warwick I spent three years in the Mathematics Department at Rutgers University. I have also spent time at Stanford and the Institute for Advanced Study. I was a graduate student at UC Berkeley, where my advisor was Bernd Sturmfels.

**Research:**
My research is in combinatorial and
computational commutative algebra and algebraic geometry, with emphasis on
toric varieties, Hilbert schemes, and tropical geometry. A copy of
my curriculum vitae is available here.

My research is supported by EPSRC.

**Seminars and conferences:**
Warwick Algebraic Geometry / Learning seminar on Moduli of Flat Structures / Semester on Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry at the Fields Institute /
British Algebraic Geometry Meeting (BRAG) /
Other
Warwick seminars
/ Other conferences/seminars

**Teaching:**
In Term 1 (2015/16) I will be teaching a TCC module on schemes.

Information about older courses is available here.
