Chadmark L. Schoen, Professor
I work on the geometry and arithmetic of figures defined by polynomial equations. I am especially interested in the geometry of algebraic curves, surfaces, threefolds and fourfolds over the complex numbers, over numbers fields, over finite fields, over fields of transcendence degree one over finite fields and over discrete valuation rings with perfect residue field. More specifically I study elliptic surfaces, elliptic threefolds, CalabiYau varieties, abelian varieties and surfaces of general type. I am interested in Chow groups of algebraic varieties and the relationship between a variety's Chow group and its arithmetic and geometric properties.  Contact Info:

I work on the geometry and arithmetic of figures defined by polynomial equations.
I am especially interested in the geometry of algebraic curves, surfaces, threefolds and fourfolds over the complex numbers,
over numbers fields, over finite fields, over fields of transcendence degree one over finite fields and over discrete valuation rings with
perfect residue field. More specifically
I study elliptic surfaces, elliptic threefolds, CalabiYau
varieties, abelian varieties and surfaces of general type.
I am interested in Chow groups of algebraic varieties and
the relationship between a variety's Chow groups and its
arithmetic and geometric properties.
