My research interests are in arithmetic and algebraic geometry with a particular focus on tropical geometry and on moduli spaces. In order to relate tropical geometry to the classical world of algebraic geometry I am using techniques from non-Archimedean and logarithmic geometry.

My preprints are all on the arXiv. Feel free to check out my Google Scholar profile.
