Teaching Statement

I am a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. My mentor is Karen E. Smith. Prior to arriving in Michigan, I spent a semester (Fall 2012) as a Research Member in the Commutative Algebra program at MSRI in Berkeley, CA. Before that, I was a graduate student at Cornell University, supervised by Allen Knutson.

Past teaching and old course webpages


I am interested in interactions between combinatorics, commutative algebra, and algebraic geometry. Most of my work concerns questions about algebraic varieties with underlying combinatorial structure and importance in representation theory (eg. cluster algebras, quiver loci, Schubert varieties, Hilbert schemes). I am also interested in characteristic p>0 techniques (eg. Frobenius splitting).
