About me

I'm a 3rd year PhD student at the Imperial College London, working under the supervision of Professor Paolo Cascini.

As of now, my main topics of research are birational geometry, the minimal model program, and F-singularities. In general, what captivates me the most is the idea of understanding the geometric structure of algebraic varieties, especially by the application of non-straightforward techniques, such as positive characteristic and analytic methods, K-stability, derived categories, non-archimidean geometry, etc.

You can find my CV here.


  • Birational geometry
  • F-singularities and Frobenius splittings
  • Algebraic geometry in characteristic p
  • Other: K-stability; Singularities of the MMP and dual complexes
