About me

Jesus Martinez Garcia

I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Essex. My research is on algebraic and complex geometry, with focus on birational geometry of varieties of Fano type, moduli spaces and computational algebraic geometry.

You can see more info about me or my research, have a look at my publications, some computer code I’ve written, or a list of conferences I’ve attended/plan to attend.

I currently supervise PhD student Theo Papazachariou. I am always interested in hearing from potential PhD students and postdocs, so feel free to contact me directly.

I am a co-organiser and host of ZAG (Zoom Algebraic Geometry) seminar, the first online worldwide regular seminar on algebraic geometry and the seminar organiser for MESS, the Mathematics at Essex Seminar Series.

  • 26/02/2021: I gave a talk titled “Asymptotically log del Pezzo surfaces” at the workshop “Fano Varieties and Birational Geometry” organised by Nottingham. You can watch the video.
  • 14/01/2020: I have uploaded a new paper to the ArXiv, “Some observations on the dimension of Fano K-moduli”, joint with C. Spotti.
