University of Kentucky Department of Mathematics 719 Patterson Office Tower Lexington, KY 40506-0027 dave.h.jensen@gmail.com Office: POT 733 Office Hours: MWF 11-12 | I am an assistant professor of mathematics at the University of Kentucky. I received my PhD from the University of Texas in 2010, under the direction of Sean Keel. After that, I spent three years at Stony Brook University as a postdoc in the algebraic geometry group, and a year at Yale working on tropical geometry. I am primarily interested in the geometry of algebraic curves and how they vary in moduli. To study these objects, I use tools from birational geometry, geometric invariant theory, and tropical geometry. In Spring 2016, I co-taught a graduate course on Tropical Brill-Noether theory with Sam Payne. Notes from this seminar can be found on Sam's website here. I also organize the department's algebra seminar. |
