I am an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina.
I work in algebraic geometry. My current work focuses on abelian varieties, compactified Jacobians, moduli of sheaves and related topics.
During college, I worked at the Ross Mathematics Program at the Ohio State University for several summers. The program is a six week long residential program for high school students. I highly recommend the program! It is an excellent experience for talented students interested in mathematics.
I am helping organize a Commutative Algebra -- Algebraic Geometry Meeting at South Carolina from November 8-10. Consider coming!
Fall 2013 I am teaching Math 747 and Math 141.
Students who have attended my classes have gone to have successful careers in law, medicine, science, and professional football.
When I was a graduate student, I had the honor of being a course assistant for the 7th most ridiculous-sounding math class offered at a liberal-arts college. The movie trailer for the class can be found here.
Last year I helped run a seminar on moduli of abelian varieties. Here are the old websites: Fall 2012, Summer 2013 .
