I’m Burt Totaro, an algebraic geometer. I’m a professor of mathematics at UCLA (Math Department). I used to be Lowndean Professor at Cambridge, hence the posts about Cambridge, EPSRC and the LMS.

I sometimes have things to say about geometry — or math more generally, both the subject and the ecosystem. This site started as a utilitarian attempt to gather and organize these thoughts.

Where to see me talk in the near future
