As of May 2023, I am no longer at UIC. My new website is at this link.

From 2020 to 2023, I was a postdoc at UIC, studying algebraic geometry. Until May 2020, I was a graduate student at Harvard, studying under Joe Harris.

My CV.

## Courses

In fall 2022, I am teaching Math 552, algebraic geometry.
