I am now a second year NSF postdoc at Harvard, doing algebraic geometry. I studied at Columbia with Robert Friedman. I am currently interested in degenerations of K3 surfaces and anticanonical pairs, partly motivated by mirror symmetry. I love talking about math and meeting new people, so please drop by my office if you feel like chatting. My email address is engel at math dot harvard dot edu. Thanks for visiting!



These days I am thinking about how to construct proper families over toroidal compactifications of the moduli spaces of K3 surfaces and anticanonical pairs. Papers:
