## Personal profile

### Research interests

I do research in algebraic geometry and some related areas of pure mathematics. Most of my research is concerned with the geometry of moduli spaces and their compactifications. It is possible to use ideas and techniques from number theory (modular forms especially) and algebraic topology to control the geometric behaviour of moduli spaces, and I have been studying this in relation to moduli of abelian varieties, K3 surfaces and hyperkahler manifolds. The geometry associated with those varieties themselves is therefore also of interest to me.

The compactifications I work with are mostly toroidal compactifications and much of my research is directed towards finding new ways to exploit the flexibility of this construction. This leads to questions on such matters as birational geometry, Hodge theory and symmetric spaces, as well as toric geometry.
