I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics.

Mathematical interests:
    My primary interest is in non-Archimedean geometry and its interactions with the tropical and birational geometry of algebraic varieties. I also like to think asymptotics in algebraic varieties over finite fields, and about operads, especially in the context of algebraic geometry.

Education:
    I received my Ph.D. from Yale University, under the direction of Mikhail Kapranov, and I did my undergraduate work at the University of California, Berkeley.

Conference on non-Archimedean geometry:
    With Bhargav Bhatt and Mattias Jonsson, I organized the conference Non-Archimedean Geometry and Its Applications, which took place at the University of Michigan during the first week of June, 2015. Click this link to see the webpage for the conference.
