I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Maths Department of Boston College. You can contact me at my surname followed by "@bc.edu".

My main interests are in the techniques and tools of the Gross-Siebert program, in particular log geometry and Gromov-Witten invariants. The main applications are to problems in mirror symmetry and degenerations and deformations of varieties.


My CV and research statement may be found below:


My publications and preprints may be found below:

I have projects on the Doran-Harder-Thompson conjecture, log miracle flatness, the GLSM with tangency conditions and degenerate contributions of maximally tangent curves:

  • The Doran-Harder-Thompson conjecture via the Gross Siebert program (joint with C. Doran)

  • Logarithmic miracle flatness (joint with D. Holmes)

  • GLSM techniques in logarithmic geometry (joint with Q. Chen)

  • Degenerate contributions to maximal curve counts (joint with T. Grafnitz and N. Nabijou)

  • Functorial derived pushforward in Macaulay2 (joint with Y. Kim and F. Olaf-Schreyer)

If you want to talk about the ideas and ingredients in the above projects, including seeing the current drafts please do contact me.


I have taught several courses while in Boston College:

  • Maths 1105 Calculus II (2 sections)

  • Maths 1103 Calculus II (2 sections)

  • Maths 2210 Linear Algebra (1 section)

  • An introduction to toric geometry (1 section)

Computer Algebra

I am a proponent of using computer algebra packages to compute in Algebraic Geometry, in particular Sage and Macaulay2. In particular I have code for calculating derived pushforward of morphisms along projective morphisms in M2 and Sage code for calculating scattering diagrams in two dimensions.
