Research: My current research focuses on the development and application of combinatorial methods in algebraic geometry, especially through connections to tropical geometry and nonarchimedean analytic spaces. My preprints are freely available on the arXiv and Google Scholar.

Teaching and Service: In fall 2014, I taught second semester calculus (MATH 115) with a flipped classroom. I serve as the faculty sponsor for Yale Splash, on the scientific committee of GAeL, on the organizing committee for AGNES, on the advisory board of AMS Mathematical Research Communities, and as director of SUMRY, an intensive summer research program in mathematics for Yale undergraduates.

Seminar: Together with Asher Auel, José Gonzalez, and Nathan Kaplan, I run a weekly seminar on algebraic and tropical geometry. We meet on Thursday afternoons in 431 DL.

In spring 2015, I am on leave as a Von Neumann Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study.
