**Shamil Asgarli**

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the math department at the University of British Columbia. My postdoc supervisors are Dragos Ghioca and Zinovy Reichstein.

I received my PhD from Brown University (May 2019) under the supervision of Brendan Hassett.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in algebraic geometry. Current research interests include algebraic varieties over finite fields, intersection theory of moduli spaces, and birational geometry of the plane.
