About me

Jesus Martinez Garcia

I am a Senior 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.

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

I am a mentor for Senior Research Officer (AKA postdoc) Tiago Duarte-Guerreiro. My former PhD student Theo Papazachariou is currently a postdoc at the University of Glasgow. I anticipate to have a number of PhD students joining me in October 2023. 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. In particular, I anticipate to be advertising a 4-6 months long postdoc to start in December 2023. If you think you may be interested, drop me a line.

  • 1/05/23: The second edition of our workshop AGGITatE is taking place in 19-21 June and it will be devoted to algebraic groups and the Cremona group. Register to attend.
  • 1/04/23: Our book The Calabi Problem for Fano Threefolds (where we solve the long-standing problem on the existence of K√§hler-Einstein metrics for general smooth Fano threefolds) is available for preorders
