I am currently a visiting post doc at the Max Planck Institute for
Mathematics, Bonn. In Cambridge, I am a post doc at the DPMMS
and a Junior Research Fellow at King's College.
My mathematical interests include higher dimensional algebraic
geometry, positivity of line bundles and subschemes, Fano varieties
moduli spaces of curves.
