I am an NSF/FRG postdoctoral fellow working in the Mathematics Department at Brandeis University . I am also a member of the High Energy and Gravitational Theory Group

My research lies at the interface of algebra, geometry and physics. I am especially interested in string theory and its many applications to mathematics.

My student Andrija Perunicic is working on a thesis about period integrals and arithmetic mirror symmetry.

This semester I am teaching 250a, a graduate course on Riemann Surfaces.

I am currently organizing two reading seminar:

- Calabi-Yau manifolds over finite fields (Th 12-1pm);
- The fundamental group of the line minus three points(F 3:30-5pm, co-organized with Joël Bellaïche and Sheldon Joyner ).
