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 and some computer code I’ve written.

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.

  • 05/07/2021: Together with a long list of collaborators (Carolina Araujo, Ana-Maria Castravet, Kento Fujita, Anne-Sophie Kaloghiros, Constantin Shramov, Hendrik Süss, and Nivedita Viswanathan), we have made available the draft of a book “The Calabi Problem for Fano threefolds“. In it, we determine precisely the families of smooth Fano threefolds whose general element admits a Kähler-Einstein metric. This is a long-standing difficult problem. Please, e-mail me any comments.
  • 01/07/2021: My paper “Constant scalar curvature Kähler metrics on rational surfaces” has appeared in Mathematische Nachrichten in open access.
