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
- Linkage and Residual Intersections
- Hilbert Schemes and Generic Ideals
If you’d like to join or contribute to any of these activities, feel free to get in touch.
- Fall 2019: Boij-Söderberg theory
- Spring 2020: Introductory topics and $D$-Modules
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.
I’m a staff writer for the AMS Grad Blog, which is a blog for and by math graduate students. My goal is to write about my point of view on the mathematics community.
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:
For Spring 2020 I am sponsored by the MSRI to work for the Macaulay2 project. Keep an eye on my journal for updates.
I’m always happy to chat about Macaulay2 and learn how others use it in research.
