Research
I am an algebraic geometer. My research is partially supported by the NSF grant DMS1259226.

Anand Deopurkar and David Swinarski) on arXiv:1401.6101.

second flip (joint with Jarod Alper, David Smyth, and Fred van
der Wyck) on arXiv:1308.1148

New nef
divisors on $\overline{M}_{0,n}$ on arXiv:1308.5993. This grew out of a shorter and simpler
