Since September 2016, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Northeastern University.

Before joining Northeastern University, I was a Benjamin Peirce Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University and a member of the Center for the Fundamental Laws of Nature.

I work on the geometry of string theory and lecture on mathematics. My research is in part supported in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF) grant DMS-1406925 “Elliptic Fibrations and String Theory”.

I co-organize the NSF funded workshop series DMS-1603247 “A Three Workshop Series on the Physics and Mathematics of F-theory” (2016-2018) with Paolo Aluffi (Florida State) , Lara B. Anderson (Virginia Tech), and Shing-Tung Yau (Harvard) . The workshop series will rotate between Virginia Tech, Harvard University, and Florida State University. The goal of the workshop series is to facilitate progress on pressing problems at the interface of algebraic/differential geometry and string theory. The first workshop was held at Virginia Tech on October 8th and 9th, 2016.

In March 13-17, 2017, I organize a five Lecture Series by Professor Matsuki on the Minimal Model Program at Northeastern University. There will be one lecture per day from 9 am to 11 am in room 509 in Lake Hall. To register, email me at j.esole@northeastern.edu with title “Matsuki’s Lecture”.
