Hello! I am **Parth Shimpi**, a PhD student in mathematics and a member of Core Structures @ Glasgow which encompasses researchers at the University of Glasgow working on Algebra, Analysis, Number theory, and Geometry & Topology.
You can read more about me here.

I work with Michael Wemyss and the Enhancing RNG Group, studying algebraic geometry and its interactions with representation theory and homological algebra. Specifically, I think about Artin groups acting on stability manifolds.

This year, I am a co-organiser of the Glasgow Algebra Pre-seminar.The articles below are largely expository.

**"Invitation to Deformation Theory",**with J Malbon and D Z Zieba ('23). [PDF]**"Derived equivalences in algebra and geometry",**supervised by I Grojnowski, Part III essay, University of Cambridge ('22). [PDF]**"Introduction to Model Theory",**supervised by G Wilsenach, Summer project summary, University of Cambridge ('19). [PDF]

The website also has an informal blog and some shorter articles.

**Tutor, University of Glasgow:**2A Multivariable calculus ('23), 2B Linear algebra ('23), 2P Graph theory ('23), 2T Discrete Mathematics ('22), 2E Mechanics ('22).**Mentor, STEP Support Programme**('19, '20, '21).**Tutor, Sutton Trust Summer School:**Combinatorics ('19).**Teacher, Fravashi International Academy:**A level Pure mathematics ('19), A level Statistics ('19).

I have previously provided personal tuition to highschool students for STEP and similar exams, and am open to taking new students.

**Course notes.** I did Part III in 2022, doing courses on algebra and geometry. The lecture notes for these can be found here. Alejandro Epelde Blanco took many of the same courses and maintains his notes here. David Bai's typed notes can be found here.

In 2023 I attended a lecture course on Riemann surfaces, the notes for which can be found here.

**RunMyDFA.** An online wysiwyg editor for finite automata/Markov chain diagrams that can simulate deterministic finite automata and generate TikZ code.

**TeX template.** I maintain a template for LaTeX documents with essential imports and helpful macros for algebraic geometers. There's also a TeX-specific `.gitignore`

file included! To set up a new project, run the script below in a command line.
