### Fall 2018

Fall 2018

**(November 16-18, 2018)**. I attended a graduate workshop on D-Modules and Hodge theory at UIC. I was funded through their NSF grant.**(November 9, 2018)**. I gave a talk on "Algebraic Geometry for Non-Algebraic Geometers" in SMARTS. I focused on the "big" problem of birational classes.**(November 7, 2018)**. I gave a talk on complex surfaces in the graduate topology seminar.**(October 30, 2018)**. I gave a talk on Serre GAGA in the graduate student seminar. Here are some notes.**(October 20, 2018)**. I volunteered at the annual high school math tournament.**(October 6-7).**I attended the Western Algebraic Geometry Symposium (WAGS) at the University of Oregon.**(August 9-10, 2018)**. I passed my third (real analysis, 3/4) and final (topology (MP), 4/4) qualifying exams!- I participated in the DRP again as Xinyu Shi's graduate mentor. We discussed elliptic curves.
- I graded for Math 3100 (Sequences and Series) this semester, along with study hall.

### Summer 2018

Summer 2018

**(July 26-27, 2018).**I discussed Hodge theory and period mappings at the annual Mock-AMS talks at UGA. Here are the slides.**(June 23-25, 2018)**. I attended a workshop on Higgs bundles at UIC.- I received funding this term through the RTG grant (NSF DMS-1344994).

### Spring 2018

Spring 2018

**(April 12, 2018)**. I lead a review session for the third precalculus midterm with Kellie Sappington, supported by the DAE.**(April 9, 2018).**I gave a lecture in the "Rational Points" reading group on the classification of surfaces and Kodaira dimension. Here are some notes.**(March 18, 2018)**. I helped Kellie Sappington create a video series for a precalculus midterm through the DAE. Here is a link to the videos.**(March 6, 2018).**I gave a talk in the K3 surfaces topics course. The lecture focused on singular abelian and K3 surfaces and was based primarily on the results of Shioda and Inose.**(February 23-25, 2018).**I attended the Georgia algebraic geometry symposium (GAGS) at the Georgia Institute of Technology.**(January 24, 2018).**I gave a lecture in the Hodge theory VRG on the finitude of the variation of Hodge structure. The talk was based on a paper of Deligne. Here is a loose translation of the relevant parts, as well as the lecture notes. The original paper (in French) can be found here.**(January 3, 2018).**I passed my second qualifying exam (complex analysis, 2/4).- I participated in the math department's Directed Reading Program (DRP) as a graduate mentor. I advised Hank Morris in algebraic geometry. I based Hank's program on Fulton's
*Algebraic Curves*. - I served as the graduate proctor for the precalculus lab.

### Fall 2017

Fall 2017

**(October 21, 2017).**I volunteered at the UGA math tournament.**(September 26, 2017).**I gave a talk at the graduate student seminar, titled "On the Casas-Alvero Conjecture for Univariate Polynomials over a Field of Characteristic 0." The talk was based on a 2007 paper.**(August 9, 2017).**I passed my first qualifying exam (algebra, 1/4).- I graded homework, projects and midterms, and held office hours for two sections of math 3300 (Applied Linear Algebra). I also tutored during study hall for the department's undergraduates.
- I served as the graduate proctor for the precalculus lab.
