Mircea Mustaƫă

Mircea Mustaƫă received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2001 under the supervision of David Eisenbud.  His research interest is in algebraic geometry.  More precisely, he is interested in singularities (connections between jet schemes of algebraic varieties and properties of the singularities, via motivic integration), free resolutions (especially for general sets of points on projective curves and connections with properties of vector bundles on these curves) and toric varieties.  Mircea was appointed as a Clay Research Fellow for a term of three years beginning 2001.
