Personal Profile

Research Interests

I am working on toric varieties, particularly on Eisenbud-Goto-type problems and spending most of my time now on finding bounds for the $k$-normality and Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of projective toric varieties. I am also interested in the syzygies of toric varieties, specifically $N_p$-property of (adjoint) line bundles on toric varieties. During my free time, I also think about the Oda's conjecture saying that every smooth lattice polytope is normal, but that is a long shot. My supervisor is Milena Hering. For more details, please take a look at my Research Statement. I am currently in the job market for a post-doc position.

I'm quite keen on table tennis and have played for the first team of the University for pass few years. I also play classical guitar. Here is a clip of me playing a Vietnamese folk song, arranged for classical guitar by Đặng Ngọc Long
