The Georgia Algebraic Geometry Symposium, UGA, March 3-5 2017 **REGISTRATION IS OPEN!**

I am an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia. I am an Algebraic Geometer. I work with algebraic curves, vector bundles, and their moduli. I am part of the UGA AGANT (Algebraic Geometry, Algebra and Number Theory) group.
