Takumi Murayama

Office: East Hall 3068

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate, in my fifth year in the mathematics department at the University of Michigan. I am interested in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, especially in positive characteristic. My advisor is Mircea Mustaţă. I was previously an undergraduate mathematics major at Princeton University, where my advisor was János Kollár.

I am currently (as of Fall 2018) on the job market for postdoctoral positions. Here is a detailed description of my research and my Curriculum Vitæ.
