Status

###
Current

I am a postdoc working with the singularity theory and algebraic
geometry group at Basque Center for Applied Mathematics
BCAM
in Bilbao.

###
Former

I finished a BS degree at The University of Iceland
(HÍ)
in 2008 and an MS degree at
Eötvös Loránd Tudományegyetem
(ELTE)
in 2010.
I finished my PhD at CEU
under the supervision
of András Némethi in
December 2015.
I also worked on normal surface singularities as part of the
low dimensional topology team at the
Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics.
until February 2016.

The geometric genus of hypersurfaces, presented on the
13th International Workshop on Real and Complex Singularities
Celebrating the 60th birthday of
MarĂa del Carmen Romero Fuster July 27th - August 1st 2014.

###
Code

A program for calculating invariants related to lattice cohomology.

A collection of functions related to numerical invariants of surface
singularities written in PARI/GP. Includes an implementation of Oka's
algorithm. Be warned that the function that calculates the Turaev torsion
is flaky. I'll have to redo that whole thing, but until then, don't take it
as absolute truth. In particular, the Seiberg-Witten invariant may be
incorrect.

A collection of small projects.

Notes

Here are some notes on various issues. I'm mostly
collecting them here for myself, but maybe they are of help to others.
