About me

Jesus Martinez Garcia

I am a Senior Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science 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 and some computer code I’ve written.

My research is currently supported by EPSRC grant EP/V055399/1.

My team consists of PhD students Lufeng Li and Charlotte Satchwell. My former PhD student Theo Papazachariou is currently a Simons Fellow at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. My former postdoc Tiago Duarte-Guerreiro is now at Paris Saclay. I am always interested in hearing from potential PhD students and postdocs, so feel free to contact me directly if you want to work in my group.


  • 02/07/24: Our article “K-moduli of log del Pezzo pairs and variations of GIT” (joint work with T. S. Papazachariou and J. Zhao) is available on the ArXiv.
  • 28/06/24: Our article “On maximally non-factorial nodal Fano threefolds” (joint work with I. Cheltsov, I. Krylov and E. Shinder) has been accepted for publication in Revista Matem├ítica Complutense. See the online-first version here.
  • 27/06/24: AGGITatE 2024 will be an LMS Research School on moduli theory happening in July.
