### Research

My interests lie in the neighborhood of algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and intersection theory. Here are some things I’ve recently read about:

• Horrocks Splitting Criterion and Tate Resolutions
• Toric Vector Bundles and Virtual Resolutions
• $D$-Modules and Hodge Ideals
• Hilbert Schemes and Generic Ideals

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.
