Emre Sertöz obtained his PhD in Autumn 2017 from the Humboldt University of Berlin, where he was advised by Gavril Farkas and co-advised by Gerard van der Geer.
He is interested in the moduli theory of algebraic varieties, in particular of curves with spin structure. His PhD was centered at the intersection of moduli theory and classical projective geometry. Jointly with Bernd Sturmfels, he is developing effective methods to compute the periods of hypersurfaces with a view towards computing the Picard rank of K3 surfaces.
In addition, together with Mateusz Michalek, Corey Harris, and Daniele Agostini, he is involved in various projects that deal with studying the images of varieties.
