Giving a talk at the work shop on the moduli of curves, Stony Brook

About me
I am a Fields-Ontario postdoctoral fellow at University of Waterloo. I am mainly interested in tropical geometry, non-Archimedean geometry, and their applications to algebraic and enumerative geometry.

Prior to Waterloo, I spent a semester at the thematic program on combinatorial algebraic geometry at the Fields Institute, and was a postdoc at the University of Tübingen. I got a PhD from Yale University in December 2014 under the wise mentorship of Sam Payne. 

Here is a copy of my CV (updated March 2018).
My email address is yoav.len@uwaterloo.ca.

Recent and upcoming math travel:
In case you are in the mood, here is a problem set on divisors on tropical curves (prepared for a mini-course at IMPA). 

Undergraduate research
In summer 2017, I led a project as part of the Fields Undergraduate Summer Research Program. The project was concerned with finding bi-tangent lines to tropical curves, and lifting them to algebraic bi-tangents. Here is a paper that came out of the program, and an example computed by my students of a tropical bi-tangent with an unexpected number of lifts. 

Conferences organized
Together with Angie Cueto and Martin Ulirch, we are organizing a special session on algebraic and combinatorial aspects of tropical geometry, at the AMS sectional meeting in Columbus, Ohio in March 2018.
In 2014, Dhruv Ranganathan and I organized the first student conference in tropical geometry in north America, known as STAGS
