About me

Jesus Martinez Garcia

I am a Lecturer 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.

  • 12/12/2019: My colleague Alastair Litterick and I have been awarded an LMS Scheme 9 grant each to partially fund the workshop Algebraic Groups and Geometric Invariant Days on April 15-16 here at Essex. Details to follow. Save the date 🙂
  • 11/12/2019: My collaborator Patricio Gallardo will be visiting Essex in March. He will give talks at Essex (9/03/2019) and Imperial College London (12/03/2019). His visited is partially supported by the London Mathematical Society Scheme 4.
  • 11/12/2019: We will be co-organising an Algebra Software Carpentry Workshop at Essex with CoDiMa. Check the workshop website (registration will open by the end of the week).
