About me

I am a Postdoc at UIC. I am spending the 2015-2016 academic year at the University of Edinburgh. You can email me at mwoolf (at uic.edu), or the less professional-sounding but more future-proof matthewjwoolf (at gmail).

I am primarily interested in algebraic geometry, with a particular focus on moduli spaces, birational geometry, and derived categories. I am also interested in the interplay between these three topics and with other areas, such as classical algebraic geometry and representation theory.
