**Area(s) of Expertise**

My research is in algebraic geometry, more specifically Hodge theory. I’m interested in the connections Hodge theory can provide between topology, complex algebraic geometry, and arithmetic geometry. For instance, one recent project uses Hodge theory to study possible fundamental groups of fibered projective surfaces and another uses Hodge theory to prove modularity results for certain smooth projective varieties.
