About me:

I'm a Visiting Assistant Professor in algebraic geometry at the University of Kansas. My mentor at KU is Prof. Bangere Purnaprajna. I got my PhD at the University of California, San Diego under the supervision of Prof. James McKernan. Here is my CV.

I am currently co-organizing the Geometry seminar at the University of Kansas.

Research Interests


  1. On rank one log del Pezzo surfaces in characteristic different from two and three. Arxiv link (Submitted).
  2. On the Kawamata-Viehweg vanishing for log del Pezzo surfaces in positive characteristic. Arxiv link (Joint with E. Arvidsson and F. Bernasconi, to appear in Compositio Mathematica).
  3. Boundedness of fibers for pluricanonical maps of varieties of general type. Arxiv link (to appear in Mathematische Annalen).
  4. Logarithmic bounds on Fujita's conjecture. Arxiv link (Joint with L. Ghidelli, submitted).
