I am a Lecturer at the University of Sheffield and a member of the Sheffield Algebraic Geometry group and I am also an associated member of the International laboratory for Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow.
I defended my PhD in June 2011 under the supervision of Andrei Suslin at Northwestern University. During the academic years 2011-13 I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, University of Bonn, the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics and the University of Mainz. In 2013-14 I was a Whittaker postdoc at the University of Edinburgh.
I work in Algebraic Geometry, in particular I am interested in derived categories and the Grothendieck ring of varieties, with applications in Birational Geometry and Algebraic K-theory. Here is my Google scholar page.
