François Greer works in the field of algebraic geometry with a specific focus on moduli spaces and enumerative geometry. He is particularly interested in the appearance of modular forms when counting geometric objects related to Calabi-Yau varieties. Greer completed his doctoral work at Stanford University in 2017 under the direction of Jun Li. From 2017-2020, he was an RTG postdoc with a joint position at Stony Brook University and the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics. He spent the following year as a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. In the fall of 2021, he joined the mathematics faculty at Michigan State University as the Van Haften Assistant Professor. He is visiting MIT Mathematics for the fall semester of 2022.
