Research interests: I am interested in various aspects of the theory of integrable systems, especially in its relations to algebraic geometry and differential geometry.

Seminar: I am the organizer of the Algebraic Geometry Seminar at NYU.

PhD: I defended my PhD at Columbia University in 2010. My advisor was Igor Krichever.
