Travel plans

Welcome! I am a Postdoc Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.  My postdoctoral mentor is Mattias Jonsson.

During Summer 2017 I am visiting the Research Group in Nonlinear Algebra, led by Bernd Sturmfels, at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig.

My research areas are arithmetic and algebraic geometry, with a particular focus on the interplay between tropical, non-Archimedean, and logarithmic geometry, as well as on its applications to moduli spaces. 

Before coming to Ann Arbor, I have been a postdoctoral fellow at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences under the thematic program on Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry as well as a Hausdorff postdoc at the University of Bonn in the group of Daniel Huybrechts. I completed my doctorate at the Department of Mathematics at Brown University with a thesis on the Tropical geometry of logarithmic schemes. My doctoral advisor was Dan Abramovich. I did my undergraduate degree in Mathematics with a minor in Physics at the University of Regensburg, where I wrote an undergraduate thesis under the guidance of Klaus Künnemann. During this time I also spent a year as a visiting graduate student at Brandeis University.

My wife Rama Srinivasan is an anthropologist. She is currently finishing her PhD at Brown University.
