## Visu Makam

I will be joining as a member with the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study starting Sep 2018. I got my Ph.D from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan in April 2018. My advisor was Prof. Harm Derksen. Prior to joining grad school, I spent my undergraduate years at Chennai Mathematical Institute, where I obtained B.Sc with Honors in Mathematics and Computer Science.

My research interests are in### Papers and Preprints
