Positivity and geometry of higher codimension subvarieties

About the project

This is a project in algebraic geometry, a subject whose overlying goal is to classify and study algebraic varieties.

The project revolves around several central questions related to algebraic cycles, birational geometry, and Hodge theory. The main theme of the project is to explore how geometric properties of an algebraic variety are reflected in its special subvarieties. One example is given by so-called `positive subvarieties', e.g., subvarieties having non-negative intersection numbers with all other subvarieties.
