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.

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 the Essex Mathematics Seminar.

  • 28/05/2019: I am a co-organiser for EDGE 2020 in Edinburgh. This will be the seventh edition of EDGE.
  • 28/05/2019: Vanya Cheltsov, Anne-Sophie Kaloghiros and I got a Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research Focused Research workshop grant for our project ‘K-stability of smooth Fano 3-folds’. Our project has more collaborators who we expect to visit the UK in January to work at the project.
  • 28/05/2019: Next year Essex will have two seminars (over Zoom, due to social distancing measures): one for mathematics and one for data science. I will be the organiser for the mathematics seminar.
  • 26/04/2019: We are running ZAG (Zoom Algebraic Geometry) seminar, the first online worldwide regular seminar on algebraic geometry. Please, go to the website to join the mailing list.
  • 20/04/2019: My paper “Constant scalar curvature Kahler metrics on rational surfaces” has been accepted for publication in Mathematische Nachrichten.
