Uttaran Dutta

I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in the Department of Mathematics at the University of South Carolina under the guidance of Dr. Matthew Ballard. I am interested in the problems at the intersection of Birational Geometry and Derived Categories.Currently, my primary focus is Bridgeland Stability and related things. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to study something together. Here is a link to my CV.


I did my Master's from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Mohali. In my Master's thesis, I studied various Derived Categorical methods in Algebraic Geometry and the Chow-Kunneth decomposition of the motive of an Abelian Variety. Here is a draft of my Master's thesis. Outside of Maths, I enjoy playing and watching soccer, listening to music, and cooking.

Conferences attended: I) Introductory Workshop: Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry at SLMath, Feb 5-9, 2024.
II) Algebraic Geometry Northeastern Section 2023.
III) Georgia Algebraic Geometry Symposium 2023.

Activities: I) In the Spring of 2024, we are organizing an online learning seminar on Stacks. Here's the link to the webpage. Drop me an email if you want to be a part.
II) In the Fall of 2023, Sayan (UGA) and I arranged a reading group on Deformation theory. Here is the webpage. Drop me an email if you want to be a part (one can always sit in).
