Giving a talk at the work shop on the moduli of curves, Stony Brook

About me
I am a Fields-Ontario postdoctoral fellow at University of Waterloo. I got a PhD from Yale University in December 2014 under the wise mentorship of Sam Payne. I was subsequently a postdoc at University of Tübingen. I am mainly interested in algebraic geometry, tropical geometry, and non-Archimedean geometry.

Here is a copy of my CV (updated August 2017).
My email address is yoav.len@uwaterloo.ca.

Recent and upcoming math travel:
In case you are in the mood, here is a problem set on divisors on tropical curves (prepared for the mini-course at IMPA). 

Undergraduate research
This summer, I am leading a project as part of the Fields Undergraduate Summer Research Program.
The project is concerned with finding bi-tangent lines to tropical curves, and lifting them to algebraic bi-tangents. 
Follow this link for more information about the program and all the participating projects. Here is an example computed by my students of a tropical bi-tangent with an unexpected number of lifts. 

Conferences organized
Together with Angie Cueto and Martin Ulirch, we are organizing a special session on algebraic and combinatorial aspects of tropical geometry, at the AMS sectional meeting in Columbus, Ohio in March 2018.
In 2014, Dhruv Ranganathan and I organized the first student conference in tropical geometry in north America, known as STAGS
