I am a 3rd year PhD student in the mathematics department
at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I
currently working together with Kai Behrend. My research
area is derived algebraic geometry, in particular derived moduli spaces.
My second home at UBC is the Graduate Student Society. I was
appointed interims Vice-President for Finance December 2011 and I was elected VP Finance February 2011 for the year 2012/2013.
My summer residence is the UBC Sailing Club.
I passed my candidacy exam
December 2011. My thesis
proposal is about 2-categorial derived
algebraic geometry. Currently I am working on relationships between
derived schemes (Toën & Vezzosi), d-schemes (based on Joyce's
d-manifolds) and dg-schemes (Kapranov & Kontsevich).
I bought a Chromebook January 2013. To write my PhD thesis in LaTeX I had to look for alternatives because using MikTeX is not possible on Chrome OS. Even tex-live as the corresponding Linux environment.
I ended up using the free version of ShareLaTeX. It is a browser based LaTeX environment and compiles your projects in the cloud. Dropbox and Google Drive Sync are announced. Try it out and support the
development by subscribing to one of the subscription models.
I am teaching MATH 105
(Integral Calculus with Applications to Commerce and Social Sciences) in the winter term 2012.
Based on my past teaching assignments at UBC I am experienced
in working together with undergraduate students to guide them
successful through undergraduate mathematics courses. I am available
for tutoring through the whole year and offer fair rates. For
additional information and
rates contact me via email.
