Leonid Monin


I am a PhD candidate in my last year at the University of Toronto and I work with Askold Khovanskii, here is my CV.

You can find me in my office HU1027 or reach via my email: lmonin@math.utoronto.ca. You also might be interested in AdIMOM and our homemade seminars.

I am interested in several areas between algebra and geometry. More specifically, my research can be divided into three parts. The first part is combinatorial algebraic geometry. This includes Newton polyhedra theory, study of spherical varieties and tropical geometry. The second part focuses on Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces. The third part is counting problems on Teichmüller spaces.
