General information:

I am an Assistant Professor at Leiden University (tenured). My primary research focuses on algebraic geometry. I co-organize two seminar series in Leiden: Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory Seminar and the Non-Commutative Geometry Seminar.  Furthermore, I am a study advisor for the algebra group in Leiden. If you would like to contact me as a study advisor, please use this email address: study_advisor_agn at

I am also a research associate of the Polyhedral Structures Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania.
