My final project for Bill Fulton's algebraic geometry class. It gives a description of which Schubert varieties are nonsingular in Grassmannians over the complex numbers. 2010

*Homotopy Theory*

Notes for a talk I gave as part of the PROMYS counselor seminar on algebraic topology. Material from J. P. May's * A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology * and Allen Hatcher's * Algebraic Topology * (awesome books). 2010

*Growth of Subgroups of GL_n(R) *

An inquiry-based learning worksheet written with Dylan Murphy for Miklos Abert. IBL worksheets introduce topics by giving definitions and problems (no proofs!) which makes them great for developing an understanding of new objects. This one covers some aspects of the Tits' alternative and growth of infinite groups. 2009

*Complex Lie Algebras *

My paper for the 2009 REU at the University of Chicago. This paper gives the beautiful classification of semi-simple Lie algebras over C (material from * Introduction to Lie Algebras * by Karin Erdmann and Mark J. Wildon). 2009

*Delta-Hyperbolic Groups *
pdf

Another IBL worksheet written with a bunch of other UChicago students. This one outlines steps to showing that delta-hyperbolic groups have a finite presentation and solvable word problem. 2008

*Amalgams, Graphs, and Free Groups *
pdf

Another IBL worksheet written with a bunch of other UChicago students. It outlines a proof of Schreier's Theorem and is mostly material from J. P. Serre's * Trees *. 2008
