My interests lie in the neighborhood of algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and intersection theory.
- $D$-Modules and Hodge Ideals
- Toric Vector Bundles and Virtual Resolutions
I’m also interested in studying gerrymandering as a source of interesting problems in mathematics. In previous lives I’ve studied quantum information, cryptography, and radio astronomy.
Fall 2019 topics:
- Boij-Söderberg theory
- $D$-Modules and Spectral Sequences
The Directed Reading Program is a graduate student-run program that provides undergraduates with the opportunity to work closely with mathematics graduate students in an independent reading project.
A main aspect of my research involves developing and implementing algorithms to study explicit examples in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra.
Here are some packages I’ve contributed to:
I’m always happy to chat about Macaulay2 and learn how others use it in research.
