I am a Professor 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.

My research is supported by EPSRC.

Interested in a summer research programme, and an undergraduate from a group underrepresented in maths? Apply to the Warwick programme for this summer!.**Seminars and conferences:**
Warwick Algebraic Geometry / Computational Algebraic Geometry Research Network / BIRS workshop on Combinatorics and Geometry of Moduli Spaces of Curves/
British Algebraic Geometry Meeting (BRAG) /

**Teaching:**
In Term 1 (2023/24) I am teaching MA3G6 Commutative Algebra.
