Burt Totaro is working on algebraic geometry, especially in the theory of algebraic cycles. The Hodge conjecture is one of the main motivations for his work, and he often brings topological methods into algebraic geometry. He is participating in the Institute’s special year on “The Topology of Algebraic Varieties.”
