Simon's Page

I am a PhD student studying enumerative Algebraic Geometry. Briefly, this means that I count things.

More specifically, I am attempting to count the number of Hyperelliptic curves which lie on a suitably generic projective Abelian Surface. The generating function of these is conjectured to be a (quasi-)modular form, and my goal is to prove this using orbifold Gromov-Witten theory and the crepant resolution conjecture.

I have previously taught Math 180, Math 104, Math 105. This summer (2011) I am teaching Math 220, Introduction to Proof.

My Erdős number is 3.
