About me

I am a fifth year mathematics grad student at Stanford University. I graduated from Yale University in 2019. I'm applying for postdocs in fall 2023.

My advisors are June Huh and Ravi Vakil.

I'm mostly interested in combinatorial algebraic geometry, especially toric varieties, moduli of curves, and applications of algebraic geometry to matroid theory. Some slides and a recording of a talk are available on my research page.

I am supported by an ARCS fellowship.

You can reach me at my office 380-H in the basement of Sloan ("Math Corner"), or by emailing me at mwlarson AT stanford DOT edu.
